Biomedical Science - Thesis/Dissertation Defense

Students preparing to defend your thesis/dissertation research, please go to the College of Graduate Studies' Academic Program Forms page for ALL required paperwork for which you will need to obtain signatures and turn into COGS to fulfill all graduation requirements. By now you should have requested a degree audit to be done by COGS staff to know exactly what you still need to do.

Once you have selected your defense date, time and place, you will need to fill out the Acceptance Form (PDF) and bring to the Associate Dean of COMLS Graduate Programs, Kandace Williams, Ph.D. This form will be used to publicly announce your defense, which is required.

You must bring to your defense either the thesis (MSBS degree) or the dissertation (Ph.D. degree) forms below:

Thesis Forms (for MSBS Degree)

Dissertation Forms (for Ph.D. Degree)


Finally, do not forget your thesis/dissertation front page that requires your committee signatures and must be submitted as part of your written work.
