Course Description and Objectives
ENG 598A, Thesis I (2 Credits)
Students will create a research proposal and outline intended to meet the requirements for ENG 598B (Thesis II). The student will then complete initial drafts of the Abstract, Review of Literature, Introduction, and Methodology sections for that research project using either the MLA (Modern Language Association) or APA (American Psychological Association) manuals for reference citations. While enrolled in ENG 598A (Thesis I) or prior, the student consults with the Program Chair to approve a thesis advisor. The student then identifies a topic in an area of interest approved by the thesis advisor. The student and the thesis advisor consult with the Program Chair to appoint a committee of at least three persons (including the thesis advisor). The committee reviews and approves the proposal and research outline. Prerequisite(s): ENG 553A (Research Methods) and approval of Program Chair. Students writing a thesis with significant quantitative content should complete EITHER a course in Statistics at the undergraduate or graduate level OR a course including in-depth study of Quantitative Methods. See print version of syllabus for detailed course objectives.
NOTE: Students writing a creative thesis (fiction, poetry, non-fiction, etc.) are expected to include a section (5-10 pp.) using research resources to explain the appropriate theoretical approaches to the creative work.
