Dear TESOL Students,
We are going to hold a thesis proposal meeting on Saturday, March 12th at 1pm in the Queen Sunheon Building room 509A.
Students who are going to be in 4th semester for Spring 2016 and are planning on doing their thesis for Fall 2016 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 Monday, March 7th. Guidelines and suggestions for how to 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 not a closed meeting. Shortly after the proposal meeting presenters will be informed of the results and, if accepted, who their advisor will be.
