Senior Thesis & Honors Thesis

Both Senior and Honors Theses are normally taken as a two-semester sequence. In the first semester the student performs research under the supervision of a faculty member. During the second semester, the student writes a thesis that presents the result of their research.

Students must contact the faculty member with whom they would like to pursue a thesis with well before the beginning of the semester. The student must work with the Instructor to design a thesis, and complete the Senior Thesis Prospectus Form or the Honors Thesis Prospectus Form. You should also review the School of Anthropology Undergraduate Thesis Guidelines.

Each faculty member has a separate thesis section number for registration purposes. Students receive grades: A, B, C, D, E.
