This is just a reminder for those of you in our Th.M. program. If you intend to begin your thesis or work on a guided research project in the Fall, you should start working on your research proposal. Technically, you can submit the proposal as late as the second week of the semester, but I strongly recommend getting it in earlier. Your best-case-scenario is to submit your proposal to me by mid-August so that we have a couple of weeks to refine it before the semester starts. That allows you to hit the ground running in September and have the whole semester to work on your thesis or project. So, if you’re not already working on your proposal, get started soon.
