Guidelines & Procedures for Senior Theses

Senior Program

The ENAM senior program consists of a required one-semester creative or critical thesis of 30-35 pages in length (ENAM 0700, CRWR 0701). CRWR 0701 requires the prior completion of one 0100-level CRWR workshop and two 0300-level CRWR workshops. Students writing a critical thesis must enroll concurrently in the thesis workshop (ENAM 0700Z). All students will participate in an oral defense of their work with the adviser and second reader of the project. Students are encouraged to complete their Junior Seminar requirement before embarking on their senior work.  At the end of each academic year, the department selects exceptional theses to be housed in the college archives.
