General Exam: MAS format

Process Overview


  1. student submits a general exam proposal. The sections consists with the following elements:

  2. Overview

  3. Primary

  4. Technical

  5. Contextural

each section has a very short description. (less than 100 words) along with a reading list. The references should generally stick to classic ones. <- but I think the ‘recentness’ very depends on the feild (Machine Learning vs Critical Writing)

  1. there is an oral exam

  2. student submits written components for each of the Primary, Technical and Contextural area. Typically each with a due date of 24hrs.

    a “contextual” area placing the intended Dissertation work in a larger social,psychological, philosophical, cultural, aesthetic, or historical perspective
