Thompson Symposium 2017

THE THOMPSON SYMPOSIUM FOR MASTER’S DEGREE STUDENTS: RESEARCH IN PRACTICE
April 29, 2017
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 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 information can be found on our Thompson Symposium Facebook Page. A $30 fee is required of participants to cover continental breakfast and lunch costs.
