MA Thesis Deadlines

All students in all MA programmes in Anthropology should turn in the thesis directly to the Anthropology Department main office.

You should turn: 1) one printed hard-bound copy, and 2) one PDF version of the printed thesis (not 2 copies as directed on the Exams Office webpage link below!)

[COVID-19 UPDATE: ONLY ELECTRONIC  COPIES OF THESES ARE REQUIRED FOR OCTOBER 2020 SUBMISSION]

PLEASE NOTE: The PDF should be an exact mirror of the hard-bound copy and should be emailed to anthropology.office@mu.ie. Please check the file size - if your thesis contains many photos it could be quite large. If it is 10MB or more, please reduce the file size before emailing it.

Layout guidelines from MU Exams office webpage - Taught Masters

Please refer to the deadlines below for your particular programme. In all cases, it is acceptable for the hard-bound copy to follow a few days later than the pdf version received on the due date. NOTE the hard copy must be EXACTLY the same as the pdf version.
