27.5 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 relevant to Women’s Studies by developing and justifying theoretical and practical approaches. The project report should consist of the project (e.g. a film or video; a computer project; a website; 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 film or video) a computer project; a website; 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 Graduate Studies Advisory Committee for its approval. The project proposal must normally be approved by the Graduate Studies Advisory 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.
