Masters Paper and Presentation Requirements

Each student is required to present their masters thesis prior to graduation. They will be mentored by a subject-matter-expert based on their thesis topic. The mentor will also be available when the student presents their thesis. The purpose of this activity is to identify a research question that the student can further develop by investigating current and relevant literature. By using evidence-based medicine, the student will be able to apply and share what they learned which improves their written and verbal communication skills. This project allows the student to collaborate with a mentor and share their knowledge to leaders and peers. They will also enhance their critical thinking skills based on their presentation to a panel of experts which will further broaden their ability to communicate their chosen topic.
