The Thesis Advisor
The ES committee assigns thesis advisors. You may recommend potential thesis advisors, who should have a background in your Concentration and/or in Environmental Studies. You may request potential thesis advisors from any member of the faculty; your thesis advisor does not have to be the ES Chair, your ES Concentration Advisor, or an ES Committee member. After you have submitted your Thesis Pre-Proposal, the ES Committee will evaluate your Pre-Proposal and assign you an advisor.
Your advisor, once assigned, will guide the development of your proposal and ultimately your thesis, help you set a schedule, and choose a style manual for appropriate citation and document readability. Please note that your thesis advisor evaluates your efforts and grades your project.
