Senior Thesis Seminar

Fall 2018

Taught By: Natalia Mehlman-Petrzela

Section: AX

CRN: 3698

Credits: 4

This course is designed for senior History majors to support the writing of their senior theses. The goal is to break the writing process down into its component parts so as to produce, by the end of the semester, a well focused project with a clear outline and a substantial piece of introductory writing that will frame and organize the research for the next semester. Each student will identify and hone a topic; locate and annotate secondary literature; begin to conduct research with primary sources; interpret those sources and begin to craft an argument; write an introduction; and outline the remainder of the thesis. The course will function as a workshop with students presenting their material, raising questions, and responding to the work of others. In addition, students will meet individually with the instructor and will have both individual and group sessions with librarians to enhance their work with primary documents.
