IBiS INTERDISCIPLINARY BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES PROGRAM THESIS RESEARCH ADVISOR AGREEMENT _____ YEAR We agree to work together as thesis advisor and student.
A student should start inquiring about MS FOS faculty research and searching for a thesis advisor during the first year of study. Once the student and the faculty member have mutually agreed to thesis advisement, formulated a project title, and the Thesis Advisor Agreement has been filled out and submitted to the Program Director, the faculty member will become the student’s thesis advisor. The program director will inform the prospectus course instructors about the various thesis projects students are working on. Upon completion of the approved thesis, the student will be eligible for a Master’s degree.
Students must successfully complete the Thesis Prospectus series (FOS795-797) in order to be allowed to submit the thesis. This series of three pass-fail seminar courses is designed to introduce the student to scholarly research, report writing, library research and documentation styles/techniques. Students should register for FOS 795 in their first semester of study. In FOS 795, students will be introduced to science faculty members and ongoing research projects. In FOS797 students are expected present their thesis research, from literature review and experimental design to preliminary data. In order obtain a passing grade for the last prospectus course, FOS 797, students must have submitted a Thesis Advisor Agreement and a thesis proposal/prospectus.
