MSOB Graduation Checklist

This checklist summarizes steps for you to finish your MSOB, including links to SIGS websites.  Most of these steps are Graduate School requirements, others just help us keep track.  You should give the final draft of your thesis (after your mentor’s approval) to the committee about 14 days before the defense seminar.  The important thing is that the Thesis defense needs to be an open ~50 minute seminar followed by a few audience questions, followed by a closed session for the Committee to question you.
