Thesis or Non-Thesis?

The decision between a thesis track and a non-thesis track generally revolves around your interest in future Ph.D. work. Many credible Ph.D. programs will not accept a student who has not already completed a thesis.

Students not interested in a future Ph.D. have the option of choosing the non-thesis track. The non-thesis option includes practical internship experience focusing on ethnolinguistic cultural contexts. Spend a month living in another cultural context. Or, complete 150 contact hours. This internship experience will be completed under the supervision of a qualified mentor.
