M.A. Final Project Committee

Your final project committee typically consists of two faculty members: the chair and a second member.

Chair: The chair is the faculty member with whom you will work most closely on your project. The chair is also typically a member of the Women's Studies core or joint faculty, chosen by you, with expertise in the research or creative project area.

Second Member: Typically, the other committee member is a Women's Studies core, joint, or affiliated faculty, but this is not always the case, especially if the student has had interactions with outside faculty whose expertise in her/his project area would be appreciated. Second members may meet with the student almost as regularly as the committee chair, or they may become involved in the project only at significant points.

Please consult the M.A. Student Handbook for more details about the process.
