Description:

Competency areas: CB, RMC & IND – Required for all students doing a Master’s Thesis.
Prerequisite: Master’s Thesis Seminar and written permission from the thesis advisor.
Restricted to Spring 2010 and earlier CB, RMC & IND.

The Master’s Thesis represents the culmination of a student’s work at Antioch. The Master’s Thesis will typically be more conceptual in focus than the Project, usually will include formal hypothesis-testing of theoretical concepts, and generally will be oriented toward eventual publication of the work in a peer-reviewed professional journal. Students will be expected to develop a thorough review of relevant literature and methodology, and prepare a final manuscript that adheres to Antioch’s Thesis Guidelines. In contrast to the Master’s Project, Master’s Theses require identification of a 3-person committee which must be chaired by an Antioch faculty member; additional committee members will generally be external to the department.
It is recommended that students register for Master’s Thesis in their 5th semester.
