In a dissertation, it is adequate if one has a decent knowledge of the new discoveries in order to arrive at the conclusion effectively. In a thesis one has to substantiate the hypothesis with original research work. The hypothesis or the ‘synopsis’ should contain the gist of the new findings one has made on a subject of research. The written thesis should contain all details of original research work that one has made on the subject. (A thesis may be subjected to scrutiny for any plagiarism to determine the originality of the effort.) Another finite difference between the two is that in a thesis analysis of any existing literature is added, whereas a dissertation by itself is an analysis of any existing literature.
The difference between thesis and dissertation are given below:
- You have to utilize already collected information in order to prepare a dissertation whereas thesis is based on the research conducted all by yourself.
- Thesis is lengthier, thus, takes more time to be completed while dissertation is short; therefore, it does not consume too much time to be completed.
- In thesis, you have to include a hypothesis based on your research work. In contrast to thesis, you should have a decent knowledge of the new discoveries in order to infer your conclusion effectively in dissertation.
- In thesis, you have to focus on your primary argument in order to prove your standpoint to the readers. In contrast to thesis, dissertation focuses on your background work.
- In Master’s dissertation, you have to utilize the research work in order to prove your point; in case of PhD thesis, you have to add novel findings to existing literature.
- Thesis is written as an academic research paper while dissertation is more like an academic book.
- Data collected in dissertation is based upon the hypothetical analysis of contents whereas your Thesis is comprised of theory and argumentation based on original research.
Well, actually, you can do that. I have myself, so you can take my word for that. I’d to good to know a little more about your assignment, but supposing it is your basic book review, you can focus on the image of the main character (if it is fiction), what techniques does ze use to draw the attention of the audience/influence their opinions, etc. (if you write on non-fiction).
You can use your basic format for essays: introduction – background – thesis – arguments and rebuttal – conclusion, it’ll help to make your essay convincing.
