24.5 Project
  1. Candidates for the degree of Master of Women's Studies (project option) will be required to complete a minimum of 18 credit hours. Candidates will also be required to complete a project.

  2. The Master's project, must be interdisciplinary in nature and aimed at linking theoretical and practical knowledge: by recognizing and articulating a problem to which Women's Studies knowledge can be applied; by developing and justifying practical approaches which seek to resolve the problem; and by creating a product that could be implemented in the community. The project report should consist of the project (e.g., a CD-ROM; a computer project; a manual or guidebook; a kit of learning resources; photographs; audio or videotape, etc.) as well as a literature-based rationale, theoretical basis and justification for its use. The length of the written portion of the project should be 50-70 pages. Regardless of the form that the project takes (e.g., a CD-ROM; a computer program; a manual or guidebook; a kit of learning resources; photographs; audio or videotape, etc.), there must be a written project report.

  3. A project proposal, approved by the student's supervisor, will be presented to the Women's Studies Graduate Committee for its approval. The project proposal must normally be approved by the Women's Studies Graduate Committee no later than the end of the candidate's third semester in the program.

  4. The project will be evaluated in accordance with procedures outlined in General Regulation Theses and Reports of the School of Graduate Studies.
