THE THOMPSON SYMPOSIUM FOR MASTER’S DEGREE STUDENTS:
RESEARCH IN PRACTICE
April 27, 2013
The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA

The Thompson Symposium is intended to provide a forum for master’s degree students to share their completed and in-progress research with graduate students, faculty, and the general public. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Marie McCarthy, professor of music education at the University of Michigan. Celebrating its tenth year, this Symposium will also highlight aspects from previous years. The Symposium is named for Dr. Keith Thompson, music education professor, who retired from Penn State in 2003.

The symposium features a keynote speaker with follow-up small- and large-group discussion; a poster session for research in-progress as well as research by faculty, doctoral students, undergraduate students, and current teachers; and small-group question and answer sessions for in-depth discussion on completed master’s projects.  Previous Symposia sinformation can be found on our Thompson Symposium Facebook Page. A $20 fee is required of participants to cover continental breakfast and lunch costs.
