Primary Instructor:

This course, for students already admitted to the Women's Studies or American Culture Honors program (application deadline: Dec. 1), is designed to help students develop the research and analytical skills necessary to complete an interdisciplinary Honors thesis. Through readings and discussions, we will explore research methods as well as standards of evidence and academic writing in different disciplines. The bulk of our work, however, will focus on each student formulating her/his thesis topic, conducting a literature review, identifying sources, and writing a research proposal outlining the problem or hypothesis and research design for the thesis. In individual meetings, the instructor will assist each student in identifying an appropriate faculty member to advise her/his thesis research and writing during senior year. Students will also read and comment on each other's research proposals.
