Senior Thesis

Advanced undergraduates can pursue the senior thesis option during their senior year.  Interested students should secure a faculty advisor during spring of their junior year or early in the fall of their senior year.  Students should have a topic in mind and approach an advisor with expertise in that area.  A senior thesis is not an independent study, but rather involves articulating a research question, designing a project to answer that question, conducting the research, analyzing the data, and writing up the results in a thesis of publishable quality.  Students pursuing a senior thesis need to be focused, motivated, and possess excellent analytical skills and the writing skills.  A senior thesis can be particularly helpful for students planning to pursue graduate studies.  A senior thesis is not required for graduation.
