HS 490 Senior Thesis Seminar

A two-semester capstone course, the first semester focuses on developing a research project. Thesis topics are chosen by students through discussion with the seminar professor. They may take the form of original research-based papers or discussions of the historical literature on an issue of interest and controversy. The second semester focuses on completing the research project, including in-class presentations of research findings, poster presentation, and the completion of the senior essay.

Prerequisite: senior standing in history; or permission of the instructor.
