The student, in collaboration with a thesis committee (faculty advisor and two other university faculty or administrators, including at least one other Student Affairs Administration faculty) will present a written and oral prospectus to this committee describing their proposed research. Research topics may draw upon the expertise and research interests of any of the faculty within the Student Affairs Administration program or administrators within the Division of Student Affairs, as long as the proposed research will allow the student to achieve the learning outcomes of the program. After successful completion of the thesis document, the student will provide an oral presentation of the study to the thesis committee and other invited faculty and students in the Department.
PLEASE NOTE: In both cases, the comprehensive examination or Master's thesis will represent a synthesis of the student's overall understanding of the discipline area acquired over the course of the program.
