How is the final project developed and approved?
Prior to undertaking the final project, the student must submit a formal proposal for the final project to the SDMS and must receive approval of the proposal before registration. At that time, the student must also submit the name of a second reader or evaluator of the final project. (The student must select the latter from outside the department of the course instructor and may, with SDMS approval, select this person from outside the College.) The description should be approximately six pages; must describe the final project clearly and precisely, including methodology, purpose, and goal; and present a preliminary annotated bibliography. If the SDMS has not received the final project proposal prior to the student's registration in the course, the student's program will be in jeopardy and may be canceled. Both advisers to the project must submit comments on the proposal when the student submits the final copy of the proposal to the Chair of the SDMS. In addition to the evaluation of final projects by the faculty sponsors, the Chair of the SDMS reviews each completed project to confirm that the project fulfills the plan approved by the SDMS.
