Seminar Paper

The ME-PD Seminar Paper is one of three options students may choose for their Culminating Project. Students should work with a faculty member to design an in-depth project based on the content area or interest of the student’s choosing. The Seminar Paper is a graduate-level paper written and submitted to report and reflect upon the student’s project work.

Example projects include:

  1. Literature Reviews
  2. Action Research
  3. Critical Reviews
  4. Individual Research/Professional Development

The final paper must be presented to the Seminar Paper Advisor and ME-PD Director.

ME-PD Seminar Paper Process Steps:

  1. Meet with your advisor and/or faculty members to discuss the content and design of your project or research.
  2. Once a project has been planned, choose a faculty member (must have Graduate Faculty status) to serve as your Seminar Paper Advisor. The ME-PD Office maintains a current record of Graduate Faculty status.
  3. Complete the Seminar Paper Advisor Form, obtaining all necessary signatures, and submit to ME-PD for processing. A completed copy will be mailed to the student for recordkeeping.
  4. Work closely with your Seminar Paper Advisor throughout the project and the writing of your final paper.
  5. When the project and seminar paper are complete, schedule and execute the presentation of your Seminar Paper with your Seminar Paper Advisor and the ME-PD Director.
  6. Complete the Seminar Paper Approval Form and submit to ME-PD for processing. A completed copy will be mailed to the student for recordkeeping.
