Students under the thesis option will have 2 years following the completion of their course work to write and defend their thesis.
The thesis advisor, always a historian, will be selected by the student in consultation with the graduate coordinator once two 6000 level seminars have been completed.
Designation of official manuscript/footnote for thesis, and non-thesis papers: "Chicago Manual of Style," using footnotes rather than endnotes.
An oral defense will be scheduled after the thesis has been approved by the committee. Committee members will conduct the defense, which may be attended by any member of the graduate faculty.
