Sociology and Anthropology
- Junior spring: student must begin meetings with a departmental faculty member. A formal proposal for the senior thesis must be submitted by April 30 of the junior spring.
- First day of class of senior year: a literature review or comparable document determined by the faculty advisor is due. When the summer work is submitted, the student will be allowed to register for a senior research project. If no summer work is done, the student will decide which semester they will enroll in senior seminar. All students doing senior research projects will participate in a no-credit weekly writing/research group.
- December 1 of the senior year: the student will turn in an agreed upon document to their faculty advisor. The faculty advisor will then make one of four decisions:
- The project will conclude and the student will be asked to enroll in senior seminar for the spring.
- The project will conclude and the faculty advisor will recommend to the department chair that the work be accepted as fulfilling the requirements for the senior capstone.
- The project will be continued as a senior research project and criteria will be established with the faculty advisor and the department chair how the final project will fulfill the requirements for the senior capstone.
- The faculty advisor will recommend that the project be continued as a thesis and a thesis committee will be assembled.
