Senior Seminar I is the first half of a two-course sequence for students in Urban Studies in which they undertake and complete a senior thesis project and paper as the culmination of their studies, a focused, original research project of their own design and execution. Under the close supervision of the instructor, they refine a research question, design a research proposal, and begin execution of the research. Students will develop and workshop all sections of their proposals and ultimately papers, including: research question and argument; theoretical framework; secondary sources and literature review; methodology and primary sources; empirical data and findings; data analysis and write- up. Students are also required to review and provide feedback on each other’s work. While visual and other media may be central or auxiliary components of the project, all theses will culminate in a final thesis paper, roughly 20 to 25 pages in length. Urban Studies students must subsequently enroll in Senior Seminar II.
Open to Undergraduate students.
