Independent Study in Physical Education
- The amount of graduate credit applied toward a master’s degree
may not exceed a total of four credits except with the special
permission of the student’s advisor, the program head, and
the Dean of The School of Graduate Studies. Approval must
be secured before independent study courses begin. Students
registering for independent study must submit at or before
registration an approved independent study proposal form. This
form must be signed by the instructor conducting the independent
study, the department chairperson, the Dean of the School of
Graduate Studies, and the student. Independent study may not
be used for collecting information for the seminar paper. Students
enrolling for independent study may obtain an independent
study proposal form and instruction sheet from the School of
Graduate Studies Office online at www.uwplatt.edu/gradstudies/independentstudy.html. A student may register for more than
the maximum number of independent study credits allowed by a
subject area. However, the student may only apply the maximum
number of independent study credits allowed by a subject area
toward a master’s degree at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
Practicum in Athletic Coaching
- Actual experience related to the coaching of an athletic team under the leadership of an experienced coach and teacher.
Seminar Paper Research
- The seminar paper or educational project need not be a report of
original and independent research. It must demonstrate, however,
the student’s ability to survey a field of knowledge and assemble,
organize, evaluate, interpret, and present evidence in a logical and
intelligent manner. Although the seminar paper or educational
project may originate from work done in connection with one of
the student’s graduate courses and be based upon a term paper or
course project, it must be more comprehensive and complete in
coverage and treatment. In consultation with the program advisor,
the student proposes a seminar paper or educational project and a
seminar paper or educational project advisor. An approved seminar
paper or educational project proposal must be submitted and
approved prior to registration. There is a website with useful links
to guide the graduate student in grammar, style, evaluating web
resources, and formats. The seminar paper or educational project
advisor will provide guidance regarding the site. The site may be
accessed through the University’s Karrmann Library.
Independent Study in Health Education
- The amount of graduate credit allowed for independent study may not exceed a total of three credits. Approval must be secured before independent study courses are begun. Students registering for independent study must submit at or before registration a description signed by the instructor conducting the independent study of the subject to be covered. Independent study may not be used for collecting information for the seminar paper.
- The thesis may be an outgrowth of a research course (e.g. TEACHING
7000 Research Procedures) or may be developed independently
within the program area. The thesis will report the results of
original and independent student research on a given problem or
topic, by systematic and impartial methods, and will demonstrate
the student’s ability to use techniques customarily employed in the
particular field of investigation. Although a thesis for the master’s
degree may not always be expected to make a significant contribution
to existing knowledge, it should be a scholarly document that
is accurate, verifiable, objective, and impartial. In consultation
with the program advisor, the student proposes a committee of
three faculty members. The committee normally includes the thesis
advisor, one additional major department member, and one faculty
member from another department. In some instances, a student
may prefer a thesis advisor who is different from the program advisor
assigned at the time of admission. An approved thesis proposal
must be submitted and approved prior to registration. There is a
website with useful links to guide the graduate student in grammar,
style, evaluating web resources, and formats. (Thesis students
will find the Texas A and M link useful for formatting procedures
and other technical assistance.) The thesis advisor will provide
guidance regarding the site. The site may be accessed through the
University’s Karrmann Library.
