SPN 182M • PROSEMINAR - METHODS OF PREPARATION FOR THE MASTER'S AND PH.D. EXAMS AND FIRST STEPS IN DISSERTATION WRITING
1:00 PM-2:00 PM
The SPN 182M proseminar for Fall 2003 will address preparation for Master's and Ph.D. exams in Hispanic Literatures and the early development of dissertation proposal and writing. Faculty presentations have been organized so that all fields in the Hispanic Literature list will be reviewed before the master's exam date of October 25th this semester. After October 25th, the proseminar presentations will deal with how to prepare the four required areas for the Ph.D. exams. Finally, we will hear presentations on how to select dissertation topics, write a dissertation abstract or proposal, and begin planning the writing of the first dissertation chapter.
There are no official requirements for this one-credit seminar except for regular attendance.
Faculty members may choose to distribute a set of recommended readings to prepare students for a presentation. If this is so, such readings will be distributed at least a week before such presentation.
