Sr.'s Present Year Long Projects to Department

Student News

For their senior capstone experience, our history majors can choose to do a year-long independent research project that culminates in a 60-100 page thesis and an oral presentation to the history faculty and students. Throughout the year, these independent researchers each work closely with a faculty adviser as they select and refine their topics, craft research questions, locate and analyze their sources, construct their arguments, and draft and revise their papers. On May 2, this year's six independent researchers presented their final projects to the department. We are delighted to celebrate their accomplishments!
