Educational Studies




Students matriculating into the program beginning in the Fall 2019 semester:

 At 9-15 hours, student meets with their assigned ES Graduate Advisor and completes the degree plan form –this is a required form, which must be completed. The degree plan form will list all courses the student will take to complete the ES degree.

 While completing the degree plan, the student discusses the culminating project [either Thesis or non-Thesis portfolio] with their ES Graduate Advisor and decides which culminating project is appropriate for their educational objectives.

 Student indicates on degree plan which culminating project student chooses:

 – if student chooses Thesis, student must select an ES faculty member for the Thesis Chair. Student must contact the ES faculty member and see if they will agree to supervise the Thesis. Student then puts name of Thesis/Dissertation Supervisor on the degree plan.

-if student chooses to do a non-Thesis portfolio, they must take an additional three credits of electives, to be approved by the ES Advisor.  There is no name to put on the degree plan for Thesis/Dissertation Supervisor.
