Final Portfolio Project Requirements

We're here to help you!

HALE M.A. students complete the degree program with a project representing their work in the program.

The project must be submitted during the last semester of enrollment, with the exception of students who intend to complete their coursework in the summer; these students must submit their final project in the spring semester immediately preceding the summer in which they take their final course.

Students must be enrolled in at least one credit hour at Michigan State University during the semester in which they submit their final project.

Final projects will be reviewed by the HALE M.A. review committee (Pass/Fail grading). The committee will consist of the student’s advisor with two other faculty members. If the review committee judges the student’s work to be unacceptable, the student must resubmit a revised project by the first day of Finals Week to graduate.

Submission Requirements

Completed projects are due:

  • Spring & Summer Semester Graduates: Last Monday in March
  • Fall Semester Graduates: Last Monday in October
