Thesis Procedures



Completing an MA thesis requires at least two semesters of work—one for preparation (assembling a thesis committee and writing the thesis prospectus) and one for writing the thesis and completing the oral defense. During these semesters, you will be enrolled in ENG 5950 (Thesis Writing, 3-6 credits).

The prospectus must be approved by the thesis committee and submitted to the Graduate Coordinator by the 10th week of the semester preceding enrollment in ENG 5950.

Throughout the process, your thesis director is your primary mentor and will assist with all questions about research guidelines, writing expectations, the prospectus, oral defense, and thesis format.
