Thesis Option

Students may prepare a research thesis at North Georgia College & State University, which will earn 3-9 credit hours towards a master's degree. Each student must successfully complete the Research Methods course before seeking approval for the thesis course.

The thesis committee shall consist of a minimum of three graduate faculty; the major professor, or Chair of the committee must be from the student's program, a departmental faculty member from the supporting program, and one other departmental or North Georgia graduate faculty member. Faculty outside North Georgia may be solicited to serve on the committee if approved in writing by the advisor.
