Please read through below for more information regarding thesis checklist and deadlines.The thesis component of the degree allows students to pursue topics of interest without the restrictions of a taught course with a specific content.Before approaching potential supervisors, do some brainstorming on your own.
Once you’ve identified the broad subject area you are interested in exploring, you should think about who to choose as a thesis supervisor.
Any graduate faculty member of the School of Hospitality Management may serve as a thesis supervisor.
Once you have identified a potential thesis supervisor, you must ask him or her to advise the thesis!
This should take place during fall or spring semester of your junior year.
You need to find a manageable topic – one that has not been researched excessively nor so under-researched that there is no literature available for you to build on.
Students should select their thesis topic in consultation with a faculty member who they wish to work with.
You can also think about interesting articles or books you’ve read in your coursework.
Finally, you can meet with the School’s honors adviser to brainstorm about who a suitable thesis supervisor might be.
If you are still working on developing your specific research question, ask for their advice or feedback on your potential research questions.
 Note that a topic is a broad subject area while a research question is much narrower.
