LLED599 Master's Thesis Sections

Students are advised to register early. Faculty policy requires that courses which do not have minimum enrolments (18 in undergraduate and 10 in graduate courses) must be cancelled six weeks to one month before the first class.

Notice for LLED Graduate Students

  1. Students who are unable to register for a particular course should contact their advisors (not the course instructor). Priority in graduate courses are given in the following order:
    • LLED students who require the course immediately to graduate at the next convocation
    • LLED students for whom the course is “core” to their area of study
    • LLED graduate students
    • Graduate students from other departments
  2. LLED 590.064 (seminar section) is offered between 16:30 & 19:30 on alternating Thursdays beginning the 2nd Thursday in September, until the following April. The seminar acts as a support group for students writing their graduating papers. Students may join the course in September or January, and at other times with the instructor’s and advisor’s permission. Prospective 590 students should have the majority of coursework completed (including EDUC 500). The course will work through all aspects of writing a graduating paper, from topic selection and narrowing, through presentation of the final product. Students will have the support of the course instructor who will read and respond to various segments of the paper. As a rule, the student’s advisor acts as the second reader of the final product.

    Students who wish to complete graduating papers on their own, should discuss plans with advisors and register directly in LLED 590 sections 061, 062, or 063, depending on the estimated time of completion. In all sections, LLED 590 earns 3.0 credits and is graded “pass” when the paper is accepted. Students may complete their papers, and thus the course, at any point during the term.
