The master’s degree at Winthrop University requires the successful completion of a final examination during the student’s final semester of course work. The submission of a portfolio is a prerequisite for taking the oral examination. Portfolio papers will be ranked for assessment purposes only. The portfolio is due no later than the beginning of the Oral Comprehensive Examination; consult each semester's list of important dates for the specific due date.
The student should use tabbed dividers to separate the portfolio items in a one-inch three-ring binder. (A suitable binder may be available on a loan basis from the Department of English’s office, BANC 250.)
An appropriate chapter of your Master’s
Thesis may meet one of these requirements.
