(Curious piece of linguistic shuffling.  Over here you do a dissertation for your master's, and a thesis for your doctor's degree.  In the US it's the other way around.  For some reason.)

Here in New Zealand you do a thesis for your masters and another thesis for your PhD. A dissertation is regarded as more like a rather long essay.
