Each year the Faculty Association Graduate Committee and the School of Graduate Studies recognize one outstanding thesis completed during the last academic year or summer with the SCSU Distinguished Master’s Thesis Award. This thesis is then submitted by St. Cloud State University as its nominee for the Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools (MAGS) Distinguished Thesis Award (see below).
Each master’s program with a thesis option is encouraged to select and submit one outstanding thesis. For more information on thesis eligibility, the nomination process and deadlines visit the Thesis Award webpage.
