Default What type of publication is a 'thesis' or 'dissertation'?

Hey everyone,

As a european IMG, we are required to complete a thesis at the end of 6 year for our degree. I did research and then compiled a thesis over a period of 7 months or so. I have included my involvement in the Experience section under Research. However, I don't know what kind of publication my thesis really is.

My thesis was reviewed by a panel of University judges, and then gets a score, and incorporated in the library (and I think gets an abstract in a University journal). For now I included it as a 'Scientific Monograph'. Is this correct, or should I include it as some other type of publication. I also gave an oral presentation for it, and I have listed that as a separate entity.
