Alum Success

Anna Wilson

"Lake State is a local University that gave me the option to earn my education while be located close to my family.  My short-term goal is to gain as much experience as possible in the community and to possibly continue my education toward a Masters Degree.  I’d like to continue my work within the city and take advantage of opportunities to be more involved in local politics.  In the long term, after I’ve made myself as competitive as possible the marketing field, I’d like to get a job at a medium to large size company and work more with individual products or brands as opposed to marketing a company itself."

" Currently I am a Board Member on the Sault Ste. Marie Downtown Development Authority, in which my marketing background has been beneficial.  Also, I work with the International 500 Snowmobile race as the Chairperson of the Non-Race Events Committee and I work in the pits doing timing for the race and other tasks.  I am studying snowmobile mechanics to eventually become a race official or snowmobile technician.  I compete on the Soo Co-op Credit Union bowling team and I’m continually involving myself in various community events."

Thesis Project

 

The honors thesis is a requirement of the honors degree. The

thesis is a major written work of either research or a creative

effort. The work is to be carried out and completed under the

supervision of a full-time LSSU faculty member who is

knowledgeable in the area.

 

Research is intended to be widely interpreted and may include,

but is not limited to, experiments, analysis of existing data, and

a summary and integration of already completed but dispersed

research.

 

The creative thesis should include a written analysis of the

creative work, describing the motivation for it, its relation to

other work in the area, and its relation to the current direction

of work in the area.

 

All academic disciplines lend themselves to thesis work. Your thesis will be tied to an existing body of knowledge and can ...

  • involve your original creative work in the visual or performing arts
  • evidence your research in the world of business or the physical, biological, or social sciences
  • highlight your historical research in an archive or library that is tied to your own hypothesis

Your may explore a problem within a single discipline or pose an interdisciplinary question.  Or you can incorporate your study abroad experience into your thesis.

However, in all cases, your thesis must be presented as a significant piece of writing and a public oral presentation that places your work within an academic framework. The written work must provide a synthesis of the relevant scholarly literature and analyze your work within that context.

"Not only is LSSU close and convenient to my home in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, but the atmosphere is very welcoming. All of the staff and students seem to be really open, and the teacher-to-student ratio is very personal, unlike larger universities." [ more ]
