Quality doctoral research occurs each semester here at TSU. Yet, only members of the departments where it occurs and few other members of the University Community know of its significance. In an attempt to disseminate this original research and its seminal findings, the School of Graduate & Professional Studies under the title of DISSERTATION MUSINGS, we will publish the abstracts of each of the excellent dissertations. Beginning next semester, we’ll begin publishing selected abstracts of masters’ theses as well. Enjoy and please provide feedback.
