The Graduate Program Committee Chair or designate will chair the presentation of the proposal. The Thesis Proposal is intended to establish the objectives, methodology and scope of the thesis project at an early stage of the degree and provides an opportunity for the Supervisory Committee to influence the direction of the research at an early stage and to offer feedback to aid the growth and development of the research trainee. The Supervisory Committee will also explore the student's knowledge in any area that is relevant to the proposed research. Graded on a satisfactory/unsatisfactory basis.

Registrar Notes:


SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
