5:00 PM-8:00 PM
The Honors Program in Anthropology aims to provide academically ambitious students the opportunity to do independent research in the form of a senior thesis. The goal of this course is to prepare students for a public presentation of their research to the Anthropology department. Students will meet weekly in a seminar format to discuss their progress in the completion of their honors thesis. Through these meetings students will have the opportunity to learn the benefits of academic collaboration. Students will be encouraged to share their ideas and to assist the moderator in helping their peers through the process. With this shared collaboration of ideas students will work towards a professional conference format presentation to the faculty and students of the department. The seminar meetings will also help students in the writing process of their thesis. An important by-product of a conference presentation is the inevitable task of refining one's writing and thereby improving one's conceptual research framework. Via collaboration, participating students will refine their final written product to be submitted for departmental approval.
