The Senior Thesis required for the interdepartmental concentration program in Latin American and Caribbean Studies is intended to deepen your understanding of a specific issue or problem in the field, while drawing together your work in separate disciplines. It represents a significant amount of work, and provides you with an opportunity to work closely with an individual faculty member while exploring in greater depth issues that may have arisen in your earlier course work and research. (If you are interested in Latin America and the Caribbean but cannot devote a considerable amount of energy in your senior year to such a project, you might consider the LACS Undergraduate Minor, which has no thesis requirement.)
