This course is designed as the capstone of the Social Theory and Practice major. It provides a forum for discussion among students who are completing the required senior project or honors thesis, as well as a loose structure to guide each student toward the final product. Students who will complete an honors thesis will typically produce a section of the thesis in this Fall term seminar, which will qualify as their required senior project, and then continue working with their advisor over the Winter term to complete the honors thesis. Group meetings will be organized around common readings on research and writing methods for the first few weeks. For the remainder of the semester, students will distribute written reports or portions of their final project for group discussion, culminating in the oral presentation and discussion of a first draft and final version of each project at the end of the semester.
