GC 558 Thesis I

2 credits
Before the end of the first year, students present their project scope and purpose to classmates for feedback and begin writing their proposals, including budgets and plans for addressing potential problems. Approval of the proposal by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) allows research to begin, usually before the end of the summer. Students conduct their projects by collecting data, analyzing it and writing up a paper describing the results. Progress and drafts are reviewed in partnership with advisors at regular intervals, and the projects are presented to faculty, classmates, and supervisors on Thesis Day, the last Friday in April and a watershed event in the graduate program.
