Major Research Project
Students will undertake research that culminates in a final 50-60 page major paper, or alternative creative work or engaged scholarship project. The alternative final project will be accompanied by a 20-30 page written report.† All MRPs must be within the scope of social and environmental justice issues and sufficiently rigorous for a Masterís program. The MRP topic will be chosen in consultation with the advisory committee and the Graduate Coordinator. Each student will have an MRP committee consisting of an Advisor and Second Reader.† Student submission of the final MRP (including written work and any other appropriate documentation such as arts piece) will be followed by an oral defense to the MRP committee.
