Dear TESOL Students,
We are going to hold a thesis proposal meeting on Saturday September 13th at 1PM in the Queen Sunheon Building room 509A.
Students who are going to be in their 4th semester for Fall 2014 and are planning on doing their thesis for Spring 2015 are required to write a thesis proposal and present it in this meeting. Those 4th semester students who do not present a proposal will be considered at that point as Practicum people.
Proposals need to be sent to the MA office in advance of the meeting. Please send an electronic version of your proposal to the MA office (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Wednesday September 10th at 12PM. Guidelines and suggestions for how one is the write the proposal can be found on our MA website:http://tesolma.com/thesispracticum.html
The meeting itself is somewhat informal with the applicants taking turns presenting their proposals to the entire group. Each applicant should bring 4 hard copies of their proposal to the meeting to give to the professors. The presentations are fairly informal and do not require any other support materials. There will not be any Power Point presentations. Basically, applicants will explain the proposals they have written focusing on the questions what, why and how.
What do you intend to do.
Why are you planning on doing that?
How do you propose to do it?
The thesis proposal meeting is a closed meeting and is open only to those who are presenting proposals.
Shortly after the proposal meeting presenters will be informed of the results and, if accepted, who their advisor will be )
