Senior Thesis

Prepared under the close supervision of a faculty thesis director, a senior thesis presents the results of independent research or creative projects. Unlike most term projects, papers and lab reports written in undergraduate courses, the Senior Thesis address questions or issues for which no known or generally accepted answers exist. The goal of the thesis is to contribute something original and valuable to the scholarly, scientific, and/or artistic community. Students who are writing a thesis enroll in UNIV 401 & 402 during their senior year, and are generally awarded either a Degree with Distinction or an Honors Degree with Distinction after the successful defense of their theses.
