Completed by the end of April of your second year, your thesis will be a substantial manuscript or project of publishable material—a collection of poetry or short fiction, a novel, long poem or electronic work (or works) or a work that crosses the boundaries of disciplines. It must be formatted according to the guidelines provided by the Graduate School, with one minor exception: the rule about double-spacing does not apply to poets (and those in other areas may also make a case for a non-standard format). Early in your second year, you should visit the Graduate School’s web site, where you can download the Graduate School’s requirements.
Please note that the Graduate School's 1 May deadline for filing the thesis is firm; do not expect to receive an extension on this deadline (and if you miss the deadline, you will not graduate in May).
The Graduate School page notes: a master’s student with a thesis requirement will submit the file through Brown's electronic theses and dissertation (ETD) system. The system is designed to collect and archive the thesis or dissertation as a text-based PDF file. An electronic file submitted through the ETD will appear in the Library's discovery service and in the Brown digital repository.
You should register for LITR 2410.
