Dissertation Proposal Seminars

One should not take the proposal class until one has completed the major examination.  The course is run as an independent study where you work with your advisor to produce a proposal. When it is time, the student just signs up via LOCUS.  You will, however, need a chair for your committee (your main advisor) from History.  It is fine to have an outside person, non-History faculty member, on the committee.  The other two should be from History. In general, people have most of the committee put together by the time they take the proposal seminar (at least a chair!).  You will have to fill out the forms with Lillian for the committee too. [n.b. these are now found through GSPS]
