Thesis Advising Policy
Master's Theses (includes BA/MA): If you would like me to be the primary advisor on your Master's thesis, please read carefully. These are my advising requirements:
1.) I advise students conducting research on health care-related topics, so if you are interested in another topic, then please find an advisor in the department who specializes in that topic.
2.) You should have completed the Master's econometrics (ECO 721) course with me.
3.) You should expect to work on your thesis for at least one year. So if you completed the ECO 721 course in the Fall of 2017, for example, then your anticipated graduation date must be December 2018 or later. You should start meeting with me immediately after the ECO 721 course.
4.) Students who first work with me as research assistants receive priority for Master's thesis advising.
5.) If you would like me to advise your Master's thesis, please send your resume and a brief personal statement (< 250 words) describing your interests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like me to be the second reader for your Master's thesis, you must send your request to me at least 3 months before your anticipated graduation date. Please tell me who your primary advisor is and write a brief description (< 250 words) of your thesis topic. I will do my best to respond promptly.
Undergraduate Honors Theses: We encourage our undergraduate Honors students to enroll in the BA/MA program and write Master's theses. If, for some reason, you have chosen not to pursue the BA/MA program and still want to write a health care-related undergraduate honors thesis, then please read my requirements below:
1.) You should have completed the undergraduate health economics course (ECO 395) with me.
2.) You need to devote at least 6 months to your thesis. So if your graduation date is May 2018, for example, then you should approach me no later than December 1, 2017.
3.) Students who first work with me as research assistants or teaching assistants receive priority for undergraduate thesis advising.
4.) If you would like me to advise your undergraduate thesis, please send your resume and a brief personal statement (< 250 words) describing your interests to email@example.com.
