Description:
The main goal of this course is to guide students in the process of writing their thesis (or alternative research project) required for the major in Global Studies. The course builds on the research design that was developed in the Fall semester. The senior work is a major independent project that requires the best application of students’ analytical, writing, and research skills. We will work together to ensure that your project fulfills these requirements and that throughout the process of doing your research and writing you have a support network that includes the instructor and your peers, in addition to your thesis advisor. This course will help you plan the writing of your thesis, it will provide strategies and feedback to help fluid your project through completion, and allow you to learn from your colleagues. Much like the first part of the course taught in the Fall, this second part is heavily interactive—we will work primarily with materials provided by you, the students, using the same model of presentations and peer review. By the end of the semester, students will finish writing their thesis and be able to present their work both orally and in writing.
