Thesis Proposal Schedule
Students in the M.S. program formally propose their thesis projects at a meeting arranged for that purpose. Faculty and graduate students attend these thesis proposal meetings. Undergraduate students and other members of the academic community are also cordially invited to attend. The proposal meetings are typically arranged 1-2 weeks in advance. Specific information about each of them will be posted here as it becomes available.
The titles of Thesis Proposals from earlier semesters are available in our Thesis Proposal Archive.
