The conclusion of the thesis (or “Concluding Reflections”) is the moment of verification of the argumentative structure and of the methodology used in the processing of data and information.
If the work is well structured, that is if the ideas at any level of the thesis represent a synthesis of those at the previous levels, the drafting of the conclusion will be agile, because immediate consequence of the work already done.
BEFORE THE CONCLUSION
Before writing Introduction and Conclusion, it is better to abandon the thesis in a drawer for at least a day, so as to get away from it a little.
This helps to write this part of the thesis more effectively, or to summarize it in the best way. A mistake that is often made, in fact, when you have the thesis too much on your hands, is to talk about it, and therefore also summarize it, giving too many things for granted and making logical leaps in the exposure. The external reader must instead be guided by you with the utmost clarity and conciseness.
CONCLUSION OF DEGREE THESIS: HOW TO WRITE IT
The conclusion must be clear and concise. For it to be effective, there must be an order, a logical procedure in the ideas presented.
In particular, it is necessary to recall the method of reasoning followed in the work, reporting the most important results that have emerged. Furthermore, mention should be made of possible future research developments and possible regulatory indications.
Therefore, the conclusions could have, for example, this form like: “From the thesis work and from the analyzes carried out it emerged that … So, we can say, in conclusion …”.
WHAT TO WRITE IN THE CONCLUSION
In the Conclusion you will have to pull the strings of the thesis: you will then enter into the merits of the contents of the individual chapters, explicitly recalling the results you have arrived at (or the literature you have consulted arrives).
The conclusion must be harmonized with the introduction; in it we must give justification and demonstration of the positions taken.
Introduction and Conclusion are alike, the only difference is that in the Conclusion you have to reveal “where the treasure is”, that is, to draw the strings of reasoning, while in the Introduction you can limit yourself to exposing the terms of the problem, without saying “how it goes to finish ”.
