PhD candidates: You are welcome and encouraged to deposit your dissertation here, but be aware that 1 it is optional, not required the ProQuest deposit is required ; and 2 it will be available to everyone on the Internet; there is no embargo for dissertations in the UNL DigitalCommons.
Master's candidates: Deposit of your thesis or project is required. All depositors: We try to observe a hour "cooling off" period to give you opportunity to correct those "oops" issues that seem to emerge just after deposit. Upon deposit, you will immediately receive an email that your submission has been received and this is what you need to show the Graduate Office. However, you can still log back in and select Revise and upload a new version with your advisor's name spelled right, or your mother thanked in the Acknowledgments, or whatever you're stressing about.
After about a day, your submission will be "published" or "posted", making it available to the Internet; you will get another email to that effect, and your submission can no longer be changed--by you. If further changes are needed, these can be made by sending a revised file to the administrator requesting replacement of the current online version. That creates duplicate records, confusion, wasted effort, frustration, sadness, tears, and causes kittens to get sick.
Finally: Congratulations; you are almost there. Click the "Submit your paper or article" link at the bottom of the gray box at left. Follow the instructions. You should be able to copy Ctrl-C and paste Ctrl-V most fields. You are the sole author; your advisor is not considered a co-author.
Do not leave it blank; then the administrator has to fill it in, and he is tempted to make it something silly. You do not need to repeat your name and title in the Abstract field; just the body of the abstract. When you reach the question "Was this submission previously published in a journal?
Be sure to click the "Submit" button at the bottom. Files upload at the rate of about 5 Mb per minute, so if you have an ungodly large file, it may take a bit of time. If your file exceeds 40 Mb, think about reducing its size--there are many ways; Google "reduce pdf file size" to find some. Okay, get started.

The criterion for obtaining the degree is that their thesis must represent a real contribution to the existing knowledge by conducting a significant research. The discipline supports students to develop research projects in their choice of period, author, or book of English Literature. The research can be conducted on Medieval, Renaissance, Enlightenment, Romantic, or the 19th and 20th centuries along with its literary critical analysis. It may involve interdisciplinary projects across the School of literature, languages, and cultures.
The key to successful research lies in asking a valid and valuable research topic which can sufficiently explore the particular area. To come up with a viable topic, intellectual preoccupation, curiosity and exploration like reading, thinking, discussing makes up the preliminary research. We, at Thesis India, have formed a team of research consultants to help you do the same.
Our research experts are specialized in English Literature and helped over students in generating well-defined PhD research topics. In teaching and language practices, the emphasis is on critical literacy and citizenship; in scholarship, the emphasis is on interpretative approaches. The program's mode of delivery is a combination of course work and research supervision largely tutorial and research-based.
These are seminar type courses offered within the Department of English; alternatively, students can take PhD cognate courses from the other departments in the Loyola Schools. These could also be done as tutorial courses with the student's supervisor. Depending on the research interest of the student, some of the cognates can be used to prepare for the language requirement. The language cannot be English, Filipino, or the student's mother tongue. The work for translation would be an excerpt from an academic document in the chosen foreign language.
Students must propose research, undertake it, and publish or present papers from it while working on the dissertation; the latter they must also defend successfully. To help students with publication, they are encouraged to present papers at a conference approved by the dissertation committee and then develop these for publication.
At least one paper should be accepted for publication or published before the degree is granted. Dissertation defense: Successful defense and submission of the final copy of the dissertation. The dissertation is going to be read by at least one external and a panel of three internal examiners excluding the supervisor. Students must enroll for six units of dissertation work per semester for at least two semesters. If they do not complete their studies before the end of the fourth year, they must continue to enroll for six units of dissertation per semester, until they complete their dissertation work and their oral defense.
Applicants must successfully complete the requirements for admission to the Office of the Associate Dean for Graduate Programs. They must also submit a well-thought out, well-written statement of purpose which will include why they are taking this particular course in the university, what they will use the degree for, what particular gaps in knowledge they would need guidance early on, and what research interest they might want to pursue.
Pre-requisites: The program is open to applicants who possess a master's degree, prefebrably in language, literature, and related fields.
