ENGL 0647 - Research Folio/Capstone Experience

Credits: 3

Required as a capstone experience in formal writing and research on scholarly topics at the end of the master’s program. Students work independently with a graduate faculty member, who advises and supervises the candidate’s preparation of research folio materials. After choosing the area and focus of research, the candidate presents a folio that includes a scholarly essay of publishable quality, a 150-word abstract of the essay, an explanation of the critical approach applied to the text, and an annotated bibliography. Suggested length of the essay is 20 pages or 5,000 words. The faculty supervisor, graduate advisor, and the English Department chair evaluate the folio. The completed paper will be presented in a public forum.
