Thesis and Dissertation Requirements
Some master’s degree programs and the Doctor of Ministry program require, or provide an option, that each degree candidate write a thesis as part of the degree program. A dissertation is required of all candidates for the Doctor of Philosophy degree. Students who are writing a thesis or dissertation should obtain, from their graduate directors, a copy of the regulations for preparing and submitting a thesis or dissertation. These regulations should be followed carefully in preparing the manuscript. After approval by the appropriate committee within the school, a thesis or dissertation should be submitted to the Provost of the University, accompanied by a receipt indicating payment of all applicable graduation and thesis/dissertation fees.
