Senior Thesis/Project

All candidates for honors in Special Concentrations must submit a senior thesis or equivalent project. This thesis usually takes the form of an essay of approximately 40 to 70 pages.  You can find more information here about developing and producing the senior thesis for Special Concentrations.  

Given the wide variety of Special Concentrations, however, students have often submitted material in other media. For example, we have had films, a musical comedy, an opera and a musical adaptation of Wuthering Heights offered in lieu of a senior essay.

Students with a practical, laboratory or performing aspect to their concentration should consult closely with their adviser and the Director of Studies before pursuing such a senior thesis project.
