TAPIA LADINO, Mónica  y  BURDILES FERNANDEZ, Gina. Rhetorical organization of the reference framework in Social Work graduation theses. Alpha [online]. 2012, n.35, pp.169-184. ISSN 0718-2201.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22012012000200011.

Studies of discourse genre have paid little attention to graduation theses produced by undergraduate students. This article describes, from a genre analysis approach (Swales, 1990), the rhetorical organization of the reference framework of a set of 30 undergraduate theses prepared by social work students at the UCSC. The study identifies four rhetorical moves: theoretical, conceptual, empirical, and normative. It is observed that each move has different purposes on theoretical, practical, and legal issues related to the social problem addressed by each thesis. The presence of recursive rhetorical steps is apparent, along with a strong commitment to solving real social problems through research.

Palabras clave : Academic genres; rhetorical organization; thesis; rhetorical move; social work.
