Scheduling your Thesis Defense

The usual practice for scheduling a thesis defense is to plan it for a day within one week of the department's thesis submission deadline.  After confirming a date and time with your thesis committee, please contact the department office to schedule a space.  You may stop by 111 Shattuck or email the Department of English.
