A master's thesis embodies original work by the candidate, conducted under the supervision of members of the faculty of Smith College. As a contribution to knowledge within appropriate fields, the work must, without fail, be clear, be grammatically correct and include a review of pertinent literature.

Two copies of the thesis (one Word document and one pdf) must be submitted electronically to the Office of Graduate and Special Programs by the last day of examinations. An additional copy of the thesis should be presented directly to the thesis director before the last day of classes. If any extension of time becomes necessary, arrangements should be made with the director of graduate and special programs. Once the thesis has been submitted to the Office of Graduate and Special Programs, it becomes the property of Smith College. No changes or corrections can be made after the thesis has been submitted.

Thesis Guidelines

Guidelines for the preparation of the master's thesis have been composed by the staff of the Smith College libraries. Since these guidelines and related polices are subject to change, please consult the document found on the libraries' website for current information.
