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—a focused, original research project of their own design and execution—as the culmination of their studies. Under the close supervision of the instructor, they refine a research question, design a research proposal, and execute 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. Senior Seminar I will culminate in a completed research proposal, roughly 10 pages in length. Urban Studies students must subsequently enroll in Senior Seminar II.
