The Annotated Bibliography (AB) is a degree requirement (required for graduation) of all Graduate degrees* for students beginning coursework in the fall of 2015 or later.

 A completed AB will consists of:

  • 25 total works that each include:
    • the formal bibliographic entry for a text, and
    • a description of thesis, argumentation, and significance of the work.
  • 15 of the total works have already been selected by the Graduate Faculty to represent the core coursework of the program. (See the Annotated Bibliography List)
  • The last 10 works are to be selected by the student with the approval of their faculty advisor. 

All students are required to obtain approval of their bibliography list BEFORE completing the annotations. The completed AB is due to your faculty advisor prior to the degree application date for the semester you intend to graduate.

Completed ABs for Fall 2017 graduates are DUE no later than Friday, September 15th! Applications for graduation will not be accepted until the completed AB is submitted.
