Thesis

Objectives

There are two consecutive thesis seminars for master's-level students electing to write a thesis (Thesis First Draft and Thesis Final Draft). These seminars are taken during the student's last year. During the third semester before graduation, the student must, with the approval of a major advisor, select a thesis subject, do research, and develop an outline and bibliography. During the final year, the thesis can be written in conjunction with these two courses. See the Talbot student handbook for dates, deadlines and requirements.

The progression of the thesis sequence is Thesis First Draft and Thesis Final Draft. Should a student need more time to develop the first draft, Thesis Continuous Registration may be taken. Once the student is enrolled in Thesis Final Draft, the thesis must be completed within that term.
