Difference Between Dissertation And Thesis

The words dissertation and thesis are often used interchangeably. But they are not the same. A student seeking a masters degree works on a thesis and one seeking a Ph.D. works on a dissertation. In other words, a thesis is submitted at the end of one's masters degree and dissertation is submitted at the end of a Ph.D.

In a dissertation, one has to collect matter from different reference materials and includes one's opinions and arguments on it. In a thesis, you have to conduct your own research. When writing a thesis, you have to include your own original hypothesis about the research that you have conducted. In a dissertation you have to infer new conclusions on the information you have evaluated and synthesized. A thesis analysis is added to the existing information whereas a dissertation is an analysis of existing literature.

However, in the U.S., you submit a dissertation if you are doing a Ph.D. while you write a thesis if you have enrolled in a masters program. On the other hand, in the U.K., a thesis is prepared for applying for an M.Phil, Ph.D. or doctorate degree while dissertation is written if you are enrolled in a masters program.


Both types require students to amass data from various sources and reference materials and compile it into a neatly typed and organized report. The preparation of a dissertation or a thesis is a tedious and extremely time consuming process. The typing and organizing at the closing stages is one of the dreariest parts of the dissertation or thesis preparation. With our years of experience in providing academic transcriptions, we are easily the favorite choice of students for dissertation and thesis preparation assistance. Transcriptionstar can type, convert all audio to text, document the research papers and compile them into the dissertation or thesis format.
