Dissertation & Thesis Handbook - Temple University
Read the honours thesis handbook which is the PSYCH 499 course outline:
This is the official handbook issued by the Office of the Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies for use with all publications in connection with earning your master's or licentiate degree.
The Project and Thesis Handbooks are required to complete your final project or thesis within your department of study. Several other forms related to graduate studies that may be required can also be found below.
Thesis Handbook - Honors Program
You may be required to complete a senior design project or thesis as part of your major requirements. The Honors College considers such courses to be equivalent to SCHC 499. For example, a history major may be required to enroll in HIST 499, or a chemistry major may be required to enroll in CHEM 499. Provided you submit a proposal (from 390 or its equivalent) and a Senior Thesis Contract to the SCHC Thesis Coordinator and follow SCHC procedures as stated in the Senior Thesis Handbook, the Honors College will count that thesis/project towards fulfilling the requirements to graduate "with Honors from the South Carolina Honors College."The information for this section was taken from the GPSS Handbook and is accurate at the time of printing. However, the program may change as it evolves, so be sure to check the for the most up-to-date accurate information concerning the structure and requirements of the curriculum and program.Occasionally, students wish to substitute another opus option for the one they were admitted to complete. SNRE’s policy is that changes in the form of the opus must be supported by a faculty advisor and approved by the Associate Dean. Students should submit a written statement that explains why this change is needed. Project students who wish to substitute a thesis must show that they have had or will acquire the integrative team problem-solving experience missed by not participating in a project. Likewise, thesis students who wish to substitute a project must show how they have had or will acquire the training in research methodology. In addition, a student may petition the Associate Dean to undertake a practicum as his/her opus work. The practicum is an individual experience, often developed around an internship experience or the design of a project (see the Practicum Handbook.)
