This thesis was written to act as a guide for undergraduates in psychology considering pursuing a post-graduate degree in psychology. Graduate students at Ball State were interviewed for information and opinions on the thesis writing process, and this material was consolidated for easy reference. The Graduate Information Resources Office contains mainly information on how to get into graduate school, not what one will go through when one gets there. The author would hope that this thesis will help other students make a more informed choice about continuing their education in psychology. The thesis could also be helpful to first year graduate students who really don't have a good idea of when or how to get started on a graduate thesis. The graduate students interviewed provided good advice on pitfalls to watch for which might be useful to other graduate students as well.
