Sample Prospectuses

These sample prospectuses (password protected document) are available to current students and faculty–which is meant to serve as a tool for considering what a prospectus could look like, what shape it might take, and to consider such aspects as argument and structure, implementation of source material, methodology, as well as examples of writers developing their own academic voice. These prospectuses are not meant to be followed as a model or to represent a norm, only to demonstrate examples of how students have structured a prospectus, based on interdisciplinary interest.
