CHIST 4349 Senior Thesis in History

The student chooses a subject for investigation and writes an extensive essay of about forty pages, working individually with the guidance of an appropriate faculty member. A thesis proposal, including project description and preliminary bibliography, must be submitted to the department for approval in the semester previous to enrollment.




6 credits in 3000-level CHIST or CHUMS prefix courses


Fall and spring


The thesis project is available only to History majors who have normally completed 90 credits, and at least 6 credits of CHIST or CHUMS courses at the 3000 level.

This course may not be selected in the same semester as CHIST 4800: Senior Seminar, unless prior approval of the thesis director has been given.
