Internships, Practica, Independent Studies, Theses, Doctoral Projects, Dissertations

Students registering for internships, practica, independent studies, theses, doctoral projects, or dissertations should be aware that these courses ordinarily require the permission of the instructor and/or department chairperson prior to registration. Specific registration requirements for each course will appear in the Bulletin description; these requirements must be observed.

In addition, students may NOT enroll for more than 3 thesis credits or 6 doctoral project/dissertation credits until the Prospectus and committee composition have been approved at the department level. This is to ensure that if the Prospectus is not approved by the Director of Graduate Studies that the student has not wasted valuable time, credits, and resources. Projects undertaken prior to the Director of Graduate Studies approving the Prospectus may be denied and the project deemed invalid.
