Abstract
Graduation design (thesis) for undergraduate English majors has long been suffering from various problems. Some colleges and universities have taken improvement measures and gained positive results, but the situation has not been fundamentally changed. The current study is based on the diversification reform of graduation design (thesis) for undergraduate English majors in Chengdu College of University of Electronic Science and Technology of China to probe into the mode and approach to improve the quality of graduation design (thesis). The reform recruited new forms (project development and research report), refined requirements and standards, encouraged students to finish the graduation design in a team approach, and combined the design with scientific research projects. The afterward questionnaire showed the diversification reform was successful. Students obtained great improvement in various abilities, and teachers' evaluation of this reform was positive, providing an instructive and lightening guidance for the future graduation design (thesis) work for undergraduate English majors in independent colleges.
