Video: "The Senior Thesis: Independent Research, Student-Inspired"

December 18, 2012 • Arts and Letters

Researching and completing a senior thesis can be one of the most fulfilling experiences of your college career. It is challenging—but ultimately satisfying because it starts and ends with you and your ideas. Each year, 30 percent of seniors in the College of Arts and Letters complete a yearlong thesis project, working one-on-one with a faculty member or graduate student to make an intellectual contribution to their chosen field of study.

Recent projects include a collection of short stories exploring the relationship between obsession and the hyperconnectivity of the modern world, a look at the Tunisian-Libyan border as a case study of refugee crisis, and a comparative analysis of productivity growth in Shanghai and Hong Kong.
