To take courses for credit in the ETSU Storytelling Program, you can apply as a non-degree student, or as a graduate major. Courses taken as a non-degree student will count as transfer courses in the event that you later decide to work towards the degree. A maximum of 9 graduate credit hours are allowed to be transferred towards the degree, whether these hours are taken before or after admission to the degree program.
*The Masters Thesis or Non-Thesis Capstone Project
The Storytelling Masters Program requires either a Thesis (STOR 5960) or a Non-Thesis Capstone Project (STOR 5961) as a culminating experience towards the degree.
*Thesis or Capstone Project Prospectus
A proposal paper must be approved by your advisor and graduate committee before enrolling for your Thesis or Capstone hours. This proposal will often (but not always) be developed in your Research Methods course. It lays the groundwork for your thesis or project topic, and includes a proposed methodology, design, justification, limitations, and initial literature/resource review.
