Writing Requirement

Submission of a 4-5 page research prospectus that clarifies the role of critical theory in the student’s research project along with submission of a substantial sample of the student’s writing (e.g. a seminar paper or dissertation chapter) that exemplifies the student’s research. The prospectus and writing sample should normally be submitted around the time the student begins a dissertation or other final project. The student will discuss the prospectus and writing sample with the Unit director and other appropriate Unit faculty members as the final stage of certification.
