Masters Forms (in the order in which you’ll need them) 

*Note regarding research skill or foreign language requirement: Think about what skill/method you actually want to learn. A method or research skill course can be anything (taken in or outside the department) that teaches you some skill relevant to your thesis or longer-term creative plans, and it shouldn’t be solely content-based. This might be a creative writing course for a screenwriter, or an oral historiography course for a documentarian who needs to conduct good interviews, or maybe one’s thesis film is about basket weavers or a community using American Sign Language, and one needs a basket-weaving class or an ASL course in order to write about that perspective. You get the idea.

Taking a language can also fulfill this requirement. One can either take enough courses to pass a language exam, or one can actually fulfill this requirement with a single language course: a B or better in one of the Modern Language Dept’s reading classes will do it. French and Spanish are being offered in spring 2018. Seats probably go very quickly, so act fast. If you already know a language other than English (and other than your first language if that’s not English), just register for and pass the language test to fulfill the requirement.

**Note regarding formatting of creative theses: Of course, creative film/video theses will be submitted as video files, but they should be accompanied by a document in the template (above), with all the front matter. Also, if creative theses have figures or tables, they must also fit within the margins, be in line with text, and have a linking title (using the “insert caption” feature) that appears in the list of figures or list of tables. If creative theses have headings in the body of the document (chapter titles, section titles) they must use the heading styles and have the linking Table of Contents.
