A thesis is a proposition: it advances an idea, a hypothesis or a recommendation; A thesis offers an argument: it presents a rationale for accepting the proposition made, rather than simply asserting a point of view; and The argument of the thesis should be maintained: it should be made convincingly by appropriate logic and sufficient evidence.

(Occasionally, you may also need to explain where your study will take place.)
