  • Senior Thesis

    The Senior Thesis is a significant study of a topic of interest to the student, and is conducted in close consultation with two faculty members serving as thesis advisor and faculty reader.  The thesis can be a piece of in-depth research or a creative project with a research supplement.  Careful planning is required at all stages of the process, and students are required to submit a thesis proposal the quarter before the thesis will be completed.
