writing a thesis
M.A. and M.S. students who apply and are approved to write a thesis will complete 30 semester hours of coursework and register for 6 thesis credit hours. The production of the thesis typically takes from nine months to a year and consists of a proposal, which must be approved by the thesis advisor and second reader and submitted to the Graduate School, and multiple drafts of the thesis itself, which the student revises after consulting with the advisor and second reader.
