You should meet periodically with your thesis or advisory committee on a regular basis to review your progress and obtain any suggestions needed to help your thesis develop.

In preparing your thesis, you should refer to the UMB "Instructions for Preparing Final Copies of Masters' Theses and Doctoral Dissertations".

You are required to give a seminar to the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (UMB) or Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry (UMBC), at least two weeks before or after the completion of your thesis defense.
