Students are required to submit a written proposal no later than the end of June of first year for Full-Time Students; as per plan of study for Part-Time Students. They are also required to present it to the Department; see The Proposal Presentation section below for submission of Thesis Proposal Scheduling Form.
The Application for Thesis Option form is the vehicle by which the Thesis Mentor and Advisory Committee are created. Through this form, a single Thesis Mentor, who must be a tenured or tenure-track Biology Graduate Faculty member, and exactly two additional Advisory Committee members, are identified. Research Assistant Professors (or ranks above) may serve as either the thesis mentor or as one of the additional members of the M.S. Advisory Committee. Such professors will also be expected to perform other functions associated with the Graduate program upon request (e.g., evaluation of graduate research fellowships, serving as moderator for the thesis proposal and/or thesis presentation, etc.). At most, one member of the Advisory Committee may come from outside the Department of Biology, subject to approval by the Biology Graduate Committee. A Curriculum Vitae for such a potential Advisory Committee member must be submitted along with the Application for Thesis Option form. In addition, these individuals will be required to indicate in writing that they have been made aware of and agree to abide by the rules and regulations of our M.S. program. Of particular relevance, the Thesis Mentor and Advisory Committee members are required to attend the student's thesis research proposal presentation and final thesis presentation. The Department of Biology assumes no responsibility for any travel costs that may be incurred by an Advisory Committee member who is not a Villanova Biology Graduate Faculty member to attend either the proposal or thesis presentations.
