Senior Thesis

Although a senior thesis is required only for Writing Concentration and Honors majors, it is an option available to all English majors with senior standing and a GPA in the major of at least 3.0.  The senior thesis offers students an opportunity to develop the sort of advanced critical, research, and writing skills that can only be cultivated through a sustained research and writing effort of several months’ duration under the direction of a faculty mentor.  Interested students should seek during their junior year a faculty sponsor within the department.  Students must have department approval to enroll in senior thesis courses.
