An M.S. student must prepare a research/thesis proposal that should be typewritten in a double-
spaced format and it should be approximately 5-10 pages in length.
The research/thesis proposal should do the following:
• Explain what the student intends to do
• Explain the value of the research
• Outline the research plan
• Define specific criteria for the completion of the research/thesis
• Include a timetable for the completion of the research/thesis
• Include a bibliography relevant to the research/thesis
After the student’s faculty advisor is satisfied with the student’s research/thesis proposal, the
student may submit the proposal to the rest of the research committee. Any member of the
committee may establish a requirement for the student to make an oral presentation of the
proposal. The research committee evaluates the proposal in terms of:
1. The value of the research
2. The feasibility of the research/thesis plan, and
3. The student’s preparation for carrying out the proposed research
The committee will accept the proposal as written, accept it with changes, or reject it. When the
committee accepts the proposal, each committee member must sign the approval page given
below. Then the student must submit the proposal to the graduate advisor.
A student must have an approved thesis proposal on file with the graduate advisor and an
approved MS Thesis form before the student can register for the final 3 hours of research or
thesis credits.
