Master of Education programs require students to exit the program through a culminating activity. Students are required to complete at least one course equivalent in the form of a culminating activity. Students may choose one of three options: thesis, project or capstone.
Capstone: Equivalent to one semester course; 3 credit hours
Project: Equivalent to two semester courses; 6 credit hours. Additional course fees may apply
Thesis: Equivalent to four semester courses; 12 credit hours. Additional course fees may apply
Culminating activities must adhere to style guidelines of the American Psychological Association (APA, 6th edition). Students are advised to purchase a copy of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association to guide them in correctly formatting a thesis, project, or capstone.
Samples of theses and projects are available on DSpace. Students should be aware that a wide variety of topics are represented. Students should consult with their supervisors to find the most appropriate theses/projects to peruse relative to their own area of research.
