Submit a Petition to the Committee on Instruction to request concentration credit for a course that would not ordinarily count. Or submit a Subfield Proposal (consisting of 2 or 3 courses) at the beginning of the junior fall, junior spring, or senior fall semester.
In addition to the public lecture, History & Literature concentrators are invited to attend a Master Class with Professor Kirsten Weld. This event is required for sophomores and juniors; attendance will be taken. Seniors and students considering concentrating in History & Literature are also welcome!
Each senior must submit two identical copies of the Senior Thesis by this deadline if the thesis is to be sent to readers for evaluation and consideration for honors. A celebration will follow from 4:00-5:30 pm in Barker 110!
Each senior eligible for honors must submit five copies of the Senior Oral Exam packet, which consists of a list of five topics for emphasis in the exam, a bibliography of primary and secondary sources, a list of relevant courses, and a program statement.
A required event for juniors (and strongly recommended for sophomores), the Senior Thesis Symposium features 5-minute talks by seniors about their thesis topics and the whole process. Join us for a supportive conversation over Indian food about finding a topic, conducting research, drafting chapters, working with faculty mentors, and other key aspects of writing a senior thesis in History & Literature.
