All Interdisciplinary Studies proposals, for both projects and theses, include the following elements:
Submitting an approved proposal is a three-step process:
Having committee approval of a proposal is not a requirement for passing MAIS 797, but it is required to register for project or thesis credits.
After completing MAIS 797, students must continue to work on the proposal until every member of the committee is willing to approve it. Students should not replace a committee member simply because they request revision to the proposal.
Students should circulate a signature sheet in hard copy for their committees to indicate approval of the proposal. Templates for the signature sheet differ between project and thesis and may be found in the menu at right.
A copy of the final proposal and a signed cover sheet should be submitted in soft copy to the Interdisciplinary Studies program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
