Thesis/Field Exam Workshop a success!

Last Monday was the annual Thesis and Field Exam Workshop. The event was hosted by Dr. Heather Hicks and there was a great turnout of first and second year grad students.

The Workshop was incredibly helpful and gave great time parameter suggestions for students to think about re: finding a faculty director and second reader, as well as tips for deciding how long to take on a thesis. It was also a great reminder that Field Exam and Thesis proposal examples are available right here on The Yawp!

Some important dates to keep in mind for students planning to finish their degree Spring 2016:
  • December 8 is the last day for students to submit a thesis or field exam proposal to Susan Burns
  • January 31 is the last day to apply for May graduation
  • Deadline for submission of theses for May graduation is April 29
  • Seventh Annual Thesis and Field Exam Symposium is April 30 at SAC 300 from 10:00am-12:00pm, followed by lunch

If you have any further questions about the Thesis and Field Exam options, please e-mail Professor Hicks at heather.hicks@villanova.edu.
