Department of Philosophy

Senior Thesis

Seniors wishing to graduate in the departmental Honors Track will write a thesis over the course of their senior year.  This is a paper of 30-40 pages, on a original topic of their choice, incorporating primary and secondary sources.  Students will work closely with a faculty director during the entire process, and their work will culminate in an oral defense of the paper in front of a committee composed of their director and two readers.


For examples of previous students’ work, see below.
