Exit Requirements for Teaching Chinese as Second Language Track

  • Thesis Option
    Students who have a GPA of 3.5 (out of 4.0) or above at the end of the second semester on campus are eligible for the thesis option. Usually, students register for 3 semester hours for the thesis. Students who intend to pursue an advanced degree are encouraged to write a thesis. A thesis must be a research-oriented project.
     
  • Non-Thesis Option
    Students who elect to pursue the MA without a thesis must submit a research-oriented paper or a material development project report to members of the MA committee sufficiently early for the committee to read and evaluate the materials before the end of the final semester on campus. The paper and the report can be originated from the term paper for CHIN:7401 and the project report for CHIN:7402 or CHIN:7403.
