Here is some information which will hopefully clarify some of the questions regarding the thesis defense process. If you have any additional questions please refer to the IMICS handbook or website or contact the IMICS office.
Additional Information Regarding the Thesis Proposal Defense
To schedule a thesis proposal defense, you must first submit the “IMICS Thesis Proposal Application Form” (國際傳播英語碩士學程論文大綱提案申請表) to the IMICS office three weeks before the proposal defense date. You will need to inform the IMICS office of your advisor and two other committee members’ names and their affiliated universities. As a reminder, one of your committee members must be from an outside university. In addition, you must prepare three copies of the “Thesis Proposal Evaluation Form” placed in envelopes labeled with each committee members’ names. It is recommended to prepare these materials a few days before the proposal defense date in order to check everything first with the IMICS office.
Additional Information Regarding the Thesis Final Defense
First, complete and hand in the “Final Defense Application Form”(學位考試申請書)to IMICS two to three weeks before the scheduled thesis final defense date. You must upload your thesis title online at iNCCU (Campus web info.
