Thesis Requirements

Steps For Completing The Graduate Thesis


As the first step in pursuing the Master's Thesis track, the student will select a Thesis Committee, which consists of a minimum of three graduate faculty members (an additional member may be included from outside the Department).

Under the direct supervision of the Thesis Chair, the student will develop a Master's Thesis Proposal.

After the Proposal is approved by all members of the committee, the student will complete the research and writing of the thesis. This committee, with the approval of the UCCS Dean of the Graduate School shall serve as the student's examination committee for the Master's Thesis Defense.

Upon completion of the Master's Thesis and approval of each member of the committee a defense is scheduled. The goal of the defense is to provide for a thorough discussion of the thesis project, and exploration of issues and implications for continued research in the thesis topic.
