Graduation Requirements

Thesis, Project or Practicum

The final product of the graduate program must be a thesis, a scholarly project or practicum that demonstrates a level of competence equivalent to a thesis. In consultation with faculty, students negotiate specific thesis questions and plans focused on their own chosen goals and areas of interest. It is the student’s responsibility to recruit a thesis chair and at least one other reader to constitute a thesis, degree project or practicum committee, though the Graduate Program Coordinator and MAIS Administrator/Advisor will assist in this process.
