Supervisory Committee

By the beginning of the second term, students are expected to have selected a mentor with whom they wish to work. For students in the research/thesis program, both student and mentor will determine the research project and, within two months of selecting a mentor, both will choose a thesis Supervisory Committee (SC) from faculty, whose interests and expertise will complement the research project. The SC will oversee all aspects of research, administer the thesis, and review students’ progress. The SC will be composed of at least three members, with at least two faculty members from the department and one from outside the department.
