Find Your Thesis Advisor

If you are completing a thesis-based graduate program you will need to conduct independent research under the supervision of your thesis advisor. Your thesis advisor is there to support and guide you in the research process, offering their expertise and encouraging you on the best ways to present your findings. As you think about your proposed research topic, please use our search below to find faculty who may be well placed to help you with your chosen area of focus.

Once you have found a professor whose areas of expertise align with your topic, you should reach out to them to ask if they would be willing to supervise you. Please make sure to send your thesis abstract with any request. Once you have a supervisor, have them review your abstract and sign their portion of the thesis application.  This document should then be brought to your program director for approval.
