There are many important factors to consider as a graduate student. Review the pages listed below for information that will be important in assisting you throughout your program.

Register for courses

  • Course registration is the most important step before starting your graduate program
  • The Graduate Studies and Research in Education Office will provide you with course registration information upon admission and for subsequent semesters
  • If you are not registering in a class in a particular semester, you must still register in a placeholder.
  • You will not be able to register if you have a hold on your Cash Office account.
  • Check the Bridge to ensure you are registered appropriately
  • Questions? Contact the Registrar’s Office.

Determine Which Culminating Activity is Right for You

  • Refer to the website for information on your culminating activity options (Capstone, Project, or Thesis)
    • The Capstone is conducted in a supportive seminar environment that draws on the participant's experience in the graduate program in order to synthesize the student's learning in the creation of a significant contribution to scholarship and/or professional practice.
    • A Project is generally intended as an application to an existing methodology or procedure. Often, people will use the project as a demonstration or as an implementation of something that does not currently exist in their system. Thus, it is more practice oriented, even though it still must have a solid grounding in the literature. Students engage in systematic inquiry of a topic relevant to their educational practice. This inquiry is grounded in theory and research but typically focuses on practice. Methods of inquiry may be both qualitative or quantitative.
    • A Thesis is theory oriented, and begins with the posing of a question that will in some way contribute to the building or validating of theory. Considerable depth is expected in the review of literature, the application of a disciplined and clearly described methodology for dealing with the research question, a thorough description of the results of the work (both descriptive and connotational), a synthesis of the research findings with extant literature, and implications of the research for both theory and practice.
