Senior Seminar/Thesis 4 credits
This course encourages and provides a senior the opportunity to develop a particular facet of English study that he or she is interested in and has already explored to some extent. Students will engage advanced reading, thinking, and writing of a research nature. The semester topic stresses depth of study, and after a period of reading, writing and revising, the student will submit a culminating research paper of 25-30 pages in length. Students will work with a faculty advisor throughout the project. This capstone experience is strongly advised for students who plan on pursuing graduate studies.
