The master's thesis is intended to provide the opportunity for independent scholarly research and should be the length and quality of a publishable journal article. The thesis project should familiarize students with the literature of their field of specialization, and enable them to formulate, investigate, and test or explore a hypothesis of significance to their field and to report on the results in an organized and coherent form.
Academic credit for thesis preparation is given through UP 208C, required of students selecting this option, and UP 598 (four units). Theses are on file at the Young Research Library. For instructions on how to locate a thesis from the YRL catalog click here.
