Joint Graduate Project

A graduate project is a significant, culminating undertaking appropriate to the fine arts and to some applied and professional fields. In a few graduate programs, students may work collaboratively on a Joint Graduate Project. Such Joint Projects have additional requirements that define each contributor’s responsibilities. A Joint Project requires the completion of an addendum form (available at the Graduate Studies Office, UN 275). The addendum identifies the names of coauthors and provides a detailed description of each student’s responsibilities. The addendum must be approved by the students’ project committee members and their graduate program coordinator, the department chair and returned to the Graduate Studies Office. Each student coauthor submits his or her own final culminating experience document with a title page listing the coauthors. These documents are typically identical except for the title page (coauthor order), signature page, dedication page and acknowledgment page.
