Academic and Thesis Advising
Thanks very much for working with the International Degree students! Below are links to helpful information for Academic and Thesis Advisors, but you can always feel free to contact the staff in the International Degree office. We would be happy to hear from you!
As of May 2010, 269 students have graduated from Oregon State University with an International Degree and 75 students representing more than 30 majors and almost every college are currently enrolled. For our latest statics, see the (pdfs) chart summary or detailed statistical report.
Students must enroll in at least 3, but generally no more than 6 credits of 403 Thesis in your academic department. Thesis advisors are the instructors of record for those credits.
A Senior Thesis approval form (pdf) and WIC Requirement form (pdf) are downloadable here. Once you have reviewed this with your student, please sign it and have him/her return it to the ID Head Advisor.
When you are satisfied with the thesis, your student will provide you with a final copy of the thesis which contains a signature page. Your signature on this page is your indication that the thesis is approved and, if other requirements for the International Degree are met, will result in conferral of a B.A. in International Studies in their primary degree or major.
In addition to signing the thesis, your student will need to make a final oral presentation. These are usually held in students' home departments. This is not a final exam. We ask you to attend the final oral presentation and introduce your student. Students are responsible for scheduling the final oral presentation with you and for inviting members of your faculty.
