1 Master of Science (M.S.) in Consumer and Design Sciences (Thesis and Non-Thesis Options) Department of Consumer and Design Sciences College of Human Sciences Auburn University Master s Student Handbook Fall 2013

2 1. Introduction This handbook presents guidelines and regulations required to obtain a Master of Science (M.S.) degree in Consumer and Design Sciences. Thesis and Non-Thesis Options are available. This document should be used in conjunction with the most recently published Auburn University Bulletin as posted at If in doubt about interpretation of rules and policies contained in this manual or the Graduate Bulletin, consult your advisor, Graduate Program Officer (GPO), or Department Head. 2. Program Description This program is offered as a Master of Science degree by the Department of Consumer and Design Sciences in the College of Human Sciences. To obtain the degree in the Thesis Option, each student is required to fulfill the course work, the thesis requirement, and the final comprehensive oral examination. For the Non-Thesis Option, requirements are completion of the course work, a final comprehensive written exam over the course work, and completion and oral presentation of a graduate project COURSEWORK To obtain the degree of M.S. Thesis Option, students must finish a minimum of 30 semester credit hours of graduate level courses, 6000-level or above. To obtain the M.S. Non-Thesis Option, a minimum of 36 graduate semester credit hours is required. Graduate students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or better to remain in Graduate School. Graduate work is divided into three categories of courses: mandatory courses, Consumer and Design Sciences focus area course selections, and supporting courses Core Course Requirements (17-20 hours) CADS 7040 Protocol for Graduate Study (1) (Fall semester only) CADS 7050 Research Methods in Consumer and Design Sciences (3) (Fall semester only) CADS 7060 Survey of Consumer and Design Sciences Research (3) (Fall semester only) One of the following 3 hour theory courses: CADS 7100 Environmental Design Theories and Applications (3) (Spring semester in even number years) CADS 7670 Social Psychological Theories in Clothing Behavior (3) (Spring semester in even number years) Pr. CADS 7050 CADS 7690 Consumer Theory in Apparel and Interiors (3) (Fall semester in odd number years) Pr.

3 CADS 7980 Graduate Project (Non-Thesis) (3-6 credit hours) STAT xxxx Statistics (3-4) (Graduate level statistics; specific course is to be chosen as appropriate for research focus.) See Appendix D for statistics options. Statistics options should be planned in the first semester with the GPO Program Focus Area (9 or more hours) Students select at least 9 credit hours of Consumer and Design Sciences courses in a focal area. New students can learn more about a focus from faculty who research and teach in those areas (see Appendix B). The student s Major Professor (MP) should align with the desired focus. A list of Consumer and Design Sciences graduate level courses can be found in Appendix C. Focus areas include: Consumer Behavior Interior Design Functional and Creative Apparel Design Retail Management Product Development Sustainability Creativity Forecasting and Trend Analysis Emerging Technologies Multicultural and Global Markets Accelerated Bachelor s / Master s Degree Program Undergraduate students accepted into the Accelerated Bachelor s / Master s Degree Program will count the 6000 level courses specified for the undergraduate Apparel Merchandising, Design and Production Management or Interior Design majors as program focus area courses Supporting Course Work Additional course work in Consumer and Design Sciences or other departments shall be selected to support the thesis research or graduate project, meet the student s career goals, and complete Graduate School requirements. These courses should be selected in consultation with the student s MP; entered on the Plan of Study (POS); and approved by the students Graduate Advisory Committee (GAC). Appendix E provides a list of possible supporting courses taught outside the Department of Consumer and Design Sciences. Because this is not a comprehensive list, other courses may be selected with the approval of the student s GAC THESIS OPTION What constitutes a thesis? A thesis is the written record of an original research project undertaken by a graduate student under the supervision of the GAC, which is chaired by the student s MP. The thesis is composed of a justification of why the topic is pertinent, what is already known relevant to the subject (literature survey of the topic), what the research objectives are and how they will be investigated, what 2

4 was found in conducting the research, and how the study contributes to the knowledge base, and implications for future research Stage 1: The GAC and the Thesis Proposal The first stage of the thesis is to choose a research topic and advisor. Under the guidance of the MP, the student then identifies the GAC, which is composed of two or three members of the Graduate Faculty in addition to the MP. In addition to the MP, at least one GAC member must be in the Department of Consumer and Design Sciences. The MP serves as Chair of the Committee. Working with the MP (and GAC members as needed), the next step is to develop a research proposal that forms the foundation for and becomes a part of the thesis. It outlines the basic research idea; presents a review of the relevant literature related to the research idea; and specifies the research plan, incorporating the methodology and analysis. Development of the research proposal normally takes several iterations. Once approved by the MP, the proposal is presented to the GAC for their approval. The student should plan on giving GAC members two weeks to read the proposal prior to the presentation. After the MP and the GAC approve the thesis proposal, the student is cleared to conduct the research activities under the MP s guidance Registration Guidelines During each semester that the student works on developing or completing the thesis, the student must register for a minimum of two hours of CADS This is the only way that the MP s work time with the student is documented. While the student is writing the thesis, after finishing the research and course work, he/she may be allowed to register for a minimum of two hours of CADS 7990 and GRAD to be reported as a full-time student Completion of the Thesis After completion of the research work, a completed draft of the thesis is first presented to the MP for review. After the MP has approved a final draft of the complete thesis, it is submitted to the GAC for review, and a final oral thesis defense is scheduled. Committee members are given two weeks (prior to the oral defense) for their review. During the first part of the oral defense, the student presents his/her thesis research. All departmental faculty and graduate students are encouraged to attend this presentation. Only the graduate student and his/her GAC members participate in the remainder of the thesis defense. The MP and GAC then pose questions to the student about the thesis research and related topics. Final passage in this oral exam requires unanimous approval of all committee members. In case of failure to pass the oral exam, the student will be allowed one re-examination contingent on the committee approval and the approval of the Dean of the Graduate School Graduate School Forms The committee vote is reported on Form 9, Report of Master Candidate Examining Committee, which should be obtained by the student from the website and filled out with the student s name and thesis title prior to 3

5 the exam. The ETD Final Approval Form must be submitted for the uploading of the final thesis. Each of these must be signed by Committee members Possible Sources of Financial Support for Thesis Research Aside from students who pursue research allied with their major professor s funded research, there may be opportunities to apply for support from Graduate School funds (http://grad.auburn.edu/cs/thesisdissertationaward.html) and/or from professional organizations. E.g., the International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) sponsors competitive applications for a limited range of awards. 2.3 GRADUATE PROJECT AND COMPREHENSIVE EXAM FOR NON- THESIS OPTION What can a project be? A graduate project is a research or creative scholarship project, or a significant teaching or outreach program. Examples include research that is similar to that for a thesis, a research-based design project, or an in-depth case study The GAC and the Project Proposal Students who choose the Non-Thesis Option complete a graduate project and take a written comprehensive exam covering their coursework. Like Thesis students, Non-Thesis students choose a MP and a Graduate Advisory Committee (GAC); the student s MP is Chair of the Committee. Members must include two departmental graduate faculty. The GAC must approve the student s Plan of Study (POS), proposal for the graduate project; and completed graduate project. Under the leadership of the MP, the GAC develops and approves the questions on the comprehensive exam and grades questions related to their expertise. The student works with the MP to develop and outline plans for a graduate project, including the format and evaluative criteria to be used. A proposal for the project must be approved by the student s GAC prior to implementation. The student should plan on giving GAC members two weeks to read the proposal prior to the presentation Completion of the Project When the project is completed, the student must submit the written project to the GAC and discuss it in an oral presentation to them. Departmental faculty and graduate students are also invited to the presentation. Committee members are given the written project two weeks prior to the presentation Written Comprehensive Examination The MP and GAC are responsible for developing the Written Comprehensive Examination, which addresses literature in the student s field based on courses in the POS. Depending on the POS courses, the GAC may ask a faculty member who is not on the Committee to contribute a question. The MP provides guidance on what and how to study for the exam. The exam is administered as a take home test composed of four questions, some of which may have more than one part, using one of the following formats for one or multiple sittings: One 9-hour period (four questions sent at the beginning), 4

6 3. Procedures Two 4-hour periods (two questions per period), or Four 2-hour periods (one question per period). The time frame for the latter two formats can range from a period of two to four contiguous days or to a maximum of two weeks. The student will choose which format to follow at least one week ahead of the test time. The MP will (copying GAC members) the question/s to the student at the beginning of the period, and the student must to the MP (copying GAC members) the response/s by the end of the assigned time span. Passing requires an overall minimum average score of 80% and all responses must earn a score of 70% or higher. The student should anticipate that grading the exam will require at least one week and will depend on other faculty commitments at the time Registration Guidelines During each semester that the student works on developing or completing the project, the student must register for a minimum of two hours of CADS This is the only way that the MP s work time with the student is documented. While the student is finishing the project, studying for the comprehensive exam, and/or completing last course work, he/she may be allowed to register for a minimum of two hours of CADS 7980 and GRAD to be reported as a fulltime student Graduate School Forms The MP and GAC members will sign Form 8, Non-Thesis Master s Final Examination Form, after the student has passed the Written Comprehensive Examination; successfully completed the graduate project; and given the oral presentation of the project DEPARTMENT OFFICE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES Graduate Student Contact Address Each student must provide a current address, phone number and address when he/she joins the program. This information is to be given to Tracie Burton, Administrative Assistant in the Consumer and Design Sciences Department Office (Spidle 308). It is the student's responsibility to make sure their correct updated name, address, and phone number are always listed on their official university records. This can be done on AU Access Use of Office and Supplies If you have a graduate assistantship, you will be assigned to a graduate student office space on first or third floor and check out (from University Facilities) whatever key/s you need to access your office and the Department Office. You will be accountable for returning the key/s when your assistantship is completed. Department purchased supplies housed in the Office are only to be used if needed for completion of graduate assistantship responsibilities and tasks. This includes using the copier/printer. Supplies, printer and copier are NOT for 5

7 personal use, e.g., course, thesis, or dissertation requirements. You will be given an access code for the copier only if you regularly require its use for your assistantship, e.g., in teaching tasks. Otherwise, your assistantship supervisor may need to allow you to use her code to complete a specific task. 3.2 ACCESS TO SPIDLE HALL AND COMPUTER LABS Your Auburn ID card will give you card-swipe access to Spidle Hall when it is locked following business hours except on the week-ends of home football games and during holiday breaks. Your card will also give you card-swipe access to the two computer labs in Spidle (110 and 302). These doors are automatically locked in non-business hours. If you have problems with your card working, contact Walter Tolbert Spidle 148). Card-swipe cautions: All swipes are recorded in the locking system. DO NOT leave any door of the building propped open to let someone else enter sometime after you; doing so will cause your swipe privileges to be removed. DO close the computer lab doors after you enter the lab in off-hours. If you do not, and someone enters after you, and then you leave but they do not and they do not close the door when they leave, then your swipe privileges will be removed. 3.3 REGISTRATION PROCEDURES AND DEADLINES University Procedures All registration for Auburn University will be via the tiger i menu channel that is located on the tiger i tab from AU Access. This is accessed in the main AU web page by clicking on Students and then clicking on AU Access. Complete registration instructions can be found at You will need a username and password to enter the site. This information will be sent to the mailing address listed on your application through the Graduate School. If there are problems with a password, contact the OIT Help Desk at CADS Specific Procedures and Policies The Department blocks online registration for the following individualized courses: CADS 7900 Directed Studies CADS 7910 Supervised Teaching CADS 7920 Graduate Internship CADS 7930 Advanced Design Projects CADS 7960 Special Problems CADS 7970 Special Topics in Design CADS 8970 Special Topics CADS 7980, 7990, and 8990 Graduate Project, Thesis, and Dissertation These are courses that involve individual work with professors and/or are not regularly scheduled. Tracie Burton will have to register you, but you must first complete a form (available in 308). 6

8 You may also be blocked from registering for a 6000 level course that shows prerequisites or any course that calls for departmental approval. If so, check with Tracie Burton to get registered. CADS 7910, Supervised Teaching, is a one credit hour course that is required for Graduate Teaching Assistants who will have direct teaching responsibilities. It should be taken under the direction of the faculty member responsible for the course and during the first term of your teaching responsibilities. It may be repeated in another term only if you are assigned to teaching responsibilities with a different course Important Schedule Adjustment Information (Consult Academic Calendar Classes dropped prior to the 6 th class day incur no drop fee. Classes dropped from the 6 th to the 15 th class day incur a $100 drop fee. Classes dropped prior to the 15 th class day of fall and spring semesters do not appear on the transcript. If tuition is reduced because of the schedule adjustment, a partial refund will be given. If the student withdraws, a resignation fee will be charged for resigning from all classes. Classes may be dropped from the 15 th class day until mid-semester. Withdrawal will be noted on the transcript, and there is no tuition refund Procedure for adding or dropping a course after the 15 th class day Students must provide Tracie Burton with the course number and credit hours, the student s MP name, and the student s Banner number. Tracie will send an to the appropriate Graduate School counselor, who will initiate the course change process in the online Work Flow program. The student, instructor of record, and MP will each have to approve in Work Flow. 3.4 PLAN OF STUDY The POS is filled in on-line at This form is used to list the course work already taken and planned to be taken by the student to complete M.S. requirements; it lists the GAC members, each of whom are asked to approve it. The Plan of Study must be approved by the student s MP, all GAC members, the Department Head, and the Dean of the Graduate School. The POS should be filed with the Graduate School by the beginning of the third semester. If unforeseen circumstances arise, the POS can be revised; a revision requires the signatures of the MP and Department Head for curricular changes and of faculty members being added to or removed from the Committee. 3.5 GRADING INFORMATION To receive any graduate degree at Auburn University, students must earn a cumulative GPA of 3.0 on all courses carrying graduate credit. Students may not take more than 9 semester hours beyond the POS to obtain the 3.0 GPA. 7

9 Students making grades of D and F must repeat those courses whether or not they are listed on their POS. Both the original grade and the grade for the repeated course will be counted in calculating the cumulative GPA. Course credits from other universities may not be used to satisfy the requirement to repeat courses. Courses that are retaken will not count as part of the 9-hour limit beyond the Plan of Study used to obtain the cumulative 3.0 GPA. Students who score a grade of U in a course that is graded as S or U will also have to repeat the course at Auburn and follow the same rules that apply for grades of D and F. 3.6 CLEARANCE FOR GRADUATION In order to get a clearance for graduation each student must have taken the following steps: 1) have a final (revised if necessary) approved POS submitted to the Graduate School by the last day of the semester before graduation; 2) finished the course work and fulfilled all entries in the POS; 3) requested a graduation check from Graduate School by the last day of the semester before the semester of graduation; 4) register in the semester of graduation; 5) clear incomplete grades by the deadline indicated on the Graduate School academic calendar; and 6) as a thesis student, finish the thesis work and have the thesis approved by the student s Graduate Advisory Committee (Form 9, ETD Final Approval Form, and completed thesis submitted to Graduate School), OR as a nonthesis student, pass the comprehensive exam and completed the Graduate Project (Form 8 submitted following both). See Appendix A for a checklist. 3.7 TIME LIMIT FOR DEGREE COMPLETION M.S. candidates have a maximum of five calendar years to complete all degree requirements. Extending degree completion beyond this time will require additional coursework. 8

10 3.8 GRADUATION To officially graduate in the term of the thesis defense or project and examination completion, the following dates must be met (as identified on the Graduate School academic calendar). Thesis students: Submit Form 9, the ETD Final Approval Form, and upload the electronic thesis by November 8, 2013, or April 3, 2014 (Summer Term 2014 date TBA). Non-thesis students: Pass the comprehensive exam and secure approval of the graduate project to submit Form 8 by November 11, 2013, or April 11, 2014 (Summer Term 2014 date TBA). Students must order their own graduation regalia at the University Bookstore. Graduation information is available at and on the Graduate School website. The Registrar s Office will also communicate with the student about graduation. If the student will finish all work by the end of the term but miss the aforementioned due dates, the student may still complete all work, and participate in graduation ceremonies, but must pay a clearing for graduation fee in the following term,. The student must speak with Clint Lovelace at the Graduate School about final submission dates for completion in a specified term. If the specified date is met, the student will not officially graduate until the next term, but can receive a certificate of completion from the Graduate School if necessary for beginning a job. The official term for receiving the degree, including the diploma being sent and being named in the graduation ceremony program, will be the next term. 4. General Information 4.1. PART AND FULL-TIME STUDENTS A student is considered a full time student if he/she is registered for nine or more credit hours per semester. The maximum course load is 16 hours per semester, not including CADS 7990 (Research and Dissertation). Part time students have a lighter course load. To hold a graduate teaching or research assistantship, a student must be registered for at least seven hours until a lesser course load occurs because of near completion of the Plan of Study and preparation for the general examination or proposal and thesis completion. All international students must maintain a full time course load through the duration of the program. After all course work and research efforts are completed, if the student still has to maintain a full time load (e.g., international students), he/she can register for plus a minimum of one hour of CADS If the student cannot maintain such status for any reason (e.g., no courses are 9

11 given, etc.), the student may get a waiver from the International Student Office to be signed by the MP and Department Head ACADEMIC RESIDENCY Master s students in the thesis option must directly engage in research with the MP; must have access to the research tools needed for the research activity; must be immersed in the culture of graduate education; must engage in the professional activities of the discipline; and must complete the research activity in a reasonable period of time. Graduation requires the MP to certify compliance with the requirements. 4.3 CONTINUOUS ENROLLMENT Full- and part-time students must be enrolled in the program for two of the three semesters in each academic year until completing the degree. E.g., assuming a two year period for degree completion, a student starting in the fall must be enrolled for the next spring or summer semester, and then again for two of the three semesters in the second year. Students not doing so will be de-activated, be required to apply for reactivation in order to re-enter the program, and be subject to specified fees for the interim terms. (See Bulletin for additional details.) 4.4 GRADUATE ASSISTANTSHIPS AND FELLOWSHIPS Graduate Assistantships Graduate teaching or research assistantships offered in the Department of Consumer and Design Sciences are subject to availability of funds. All graduate students accepted into the M.S. in Consumer and Design Sciences Program are considered as applicants for available assistantships. Graduate Assistant appointments are temporary. Appointment and continuation depends on availability of funds, levels of enrollment, and teaching or research needs. Renewal also depends on a high level of academic performance, excellent performance as a graduate assistant, and satisfactory progress toward the degree. Each GTA/GRA will be evaluated each semester by the faculty member directing his/her assistantship. See Appendix F for evaluation form. Assistantships for master s degree students are generally awarded only for a maximum period of two years. Beginning January 1, 2014, all new graduate employees (assistants and/or working for an hourly wage) will be required to pass a background check as a condition for appointment. A fee of $35 will be charged to the student for the basic check; if employment will involve work-required driving, an expanded check will be substituted for a total fee of $ Graduate Tuition Fellowships All Auburn University graduate assistants with appointments of 0.25 FTE or higher are classified as in-state residents for the purposes of tuition charges and 10

12 therefore receive remission of the non-resident portion of tuition. University support for in-state tuition support is limited to 110% of the hours required for the degree. All new Auburn University graduate assistants (non-resident and Alabama residents) who hold at least 0.33 FTE appointments receive full tuition support (up to 15 hours per term). Graduate assistants with appointments at 0.33 FTE or higher for both Fall and Spring semesters will receive tuition support during the corresponding Summer semester even if not appointed to a Summer assistantship. Acceptance of the Fellowship requires the payment of a registration fee each semester. All new Auburn University graduate assistants (non-resident and Alabama residents) who hold 0.25 FTE appointments receive 50% tuition support (up to 15 hours per term). Acceptance of the Fellowship requires the payment of a registration fee each semester. All continuing Auburn University graduate assistants who had and continue to have at least 0.25 FTE appointments for Fall and Spring, , will continue with the same tuition fellowship as in the previous year. The Tuition Fellowship Program Policy is reviewed by the University every two years. 4.4 STUDENT ACTIVITIES AND ORGANIZATIONS Conference Presentations Graduate students are encouraged to submit papers for presentation or entries in design competitions at conferences such as at the Auburn University Graduate Student Consortium, the Southeastern Graduate Student Consortium, International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA), Interior Design Educator s Council (IDEC), American Collegiate Retail Association (ACRA), and other conferences. Information about such conferences will be distributed through department or department bulletin boards. When departmental budget resources allow, the department may provide some support for graduate students presenting papers. Students who have papers accepted for presentation or designs accepted for exhibition should check with the Department Head for availability of partial travel support. These students should also apply for Graduate Travel Awards. See https://fp.auburn.edu/gradschl/public_html/forms/guidelines.asp. Graduate students focusing on Interior Design also may inquire into travel funding from IDEC. Southeastern Graduate Student Consortium Graduate students in the textile and apparel related graduate programs at Auburn University, University of Georgia, Louisiana State University, University of North Carolina-Greensboro, Florida State University, University of Kentucky, University of Tennessee, and the University of South Carolina are invited to participate in a 11

13 Graduate Student Consortium each Spring Semester. The purpose of the consortium is to allow students from participating universities a forum for networking and for the professional presentation of graduate research. Auburn University Graduate Research Forum The Graduate Research Forum provides an opportunity for graduate students to present their research while competing for cash prizes. Auburn graduate students are eligible to participate in either an oral or poster presentation session. Abstracts submitted to other conferences will be accepted as long as they have not been submitted at a previous Forum. Students may sign up and submit an abstract at the Graduate Student Consortium website. The schedule of events will be posted on the GSC homepage at soon after all abstracts have been submitted. Graduate Student Council (GSC) The Department of Consumer and Design Sciences has two representatives to the University-wide Graduate Student Council, which meets on a regular basis to discuss issues related to graduate students. The GSC also sponsors graduate student events. The Department strives to have one M.S. and one Ph.D. student as the two representatives, and they typically serve for a full year. Grisham/Trentham Lecture The Department of Consumer and Design Sciences annually invites a nationally recognized authority to share his/her experiences, expertise, and insights from some aspect of textiles, apparel or interiors with students and faculty. Recent Grisham/Trentham speakers include: Steve McCracken, President of Dupont Textiles and Interiors, 2003; Kay Unger, Fashion Designer, 2004; Marc Gobe, Branding Specialist, 2005; Karen Fisher, Design Manager, 2006; Billy Reid, Fashion Designer, 2007; Linda Loudermilk, Sustainable Fashion Design, 2008; John C.
