Master’s Thesis

From the Communication Disorders Program Graduate Student Handbook: “Students seeking a master’s degree in CD have the opportunity to complete a master’s thesis in addition to their required coursework. The master’s thesis is a research project conducted by the student under the supervision of an advisory committee. The project includes a comprehensive review of literature on a selected topic and an empirical study. The advisory committee consists of two faculty members in the Department of Educational Psychology, Special Education, and Communication Disorders, with at least one of those faculty members from the CD Program, and one faculty member from outside the program. A written prospectus describing in detail the proposed master’s project must be submitted to and approved by all (three) members of the advisory committee before the work is begun. The student will work with the chair of the thesis advisory committee to develop a prospectus. The prospectus is defended in an oral presentation. When approved the student will carry-out the study and defend it in a final oral presentation with a written document.“

Research Projects

Students are encouraged to develop guided research projects under the supervision of Dr. Laures-Gore.  These projects are student-driven and do not require a formal committee.
