Design a public and/or digital humanities project that builds on their M.A. coursework
Develop a bibliography and synthesis of the relevant research that informs their project
Apply critical and creative methods to articulate scholarly ideas in a non-traditional form for specific public and/or academic audiences
Connect their curricular work with their professional interests and goals
