Students electing to complete a thesis (or considering it) should familiarize themselves with both this page and Graduate School's website, and thus be aware that the approval and submission of a thesis is a multi-step process involving both the English Department and the Graduate School.

All institutional policies, procedures, and academic forms involving thesis submission are available on the Graduate School's page "Dissertation and Thesis Information."

Below you will find a detailed breakdown of the preparation entailed in beginning serious work on your thesis, including the M.A. Thesis Seminar, as well as submission instructions once your work is complete. 

Departmental guidelines on thesis writing are also described below.
