Dissertation Boot Camp

Winner of the 2012 Boston College Division of Student Affairs' Innovative New Program



Dissertation Boot Camp is a three-day intensive writing workshop that provides the focus, structure, and motivation to help address and overcome some of the typical roadblocks doctoral students may encounter during the dissertation writing process.  Participants will have access to a quiet, comfortable working environment, writing support, daily lunch and snacks, and opportunities for personal reflection.

The 2015 Dissertation Boot Camp took place in November, 2015. Stay tuned for our 2016 events!
