In partial fulfillment of the requirements for the master’s degree, a student must submit a
thesis, when applicable, based on results of original and independent research. Except in
departments or programs in which the medium of instruction is not English, the thesis must
be in English. The Department concerned must ensure the availability of a copy of the Thesis Manual,
which provides instructions on the preparation of theses. Its application is mandatory and
theses not conforming to its requirements will not be accepted. For all matters not
discussed in the manual, theses must follow the form and style described in the latest
edition of K. L. Turabian, Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses and Dissertations
(University of Chicago Press), or any other form specified by the department or program
provided this conforms to the manual.
Copies of the thesis, unbound but ready for binding, should be submitted to the members of
the thesis committee at least two weeks before the defense. Copies may be obtained by any
legible and durable form of reproduction. Additional copies may be required, as specified
by the concerned department or program.
