Thesis Coaching

To help Cal Poly graduate students complete their Master’s Theses or Project Reports, the Graduate Education Office in collaboration with the Kennedy Library is once again sponsoring the very popular Thesis Coaching Clinic.
Retired Computer Science professor Dr. Erika Rogers will be providing customized one-on-one thesis coaching sessions for graduate students in all disciplines and at all levels.

Student Feedback

“I have been trying to finish my thesis paper for a very long time, and this thesis clinic definitely helped me to get this done! I have now scheduled my thesis defense and see the light at the end of the tunnel!”
“I came out of the session with such a positive view of my thesis. Going in it felt like a dark cloud hanging over me that I was worried about getting completed in time. Now I feel like I can take it on with confidence.”
“It was really useful to get an outside opinion that is not my advisor or parents and from someone who has lots of experience.”
“The meeting went very well. She really listened and focused on my thesis as an individual and gave me very personalized advice.”
