Please note that 324 is a course offered to support students in their senior year finishing their required research essay. It is a course in the major and is therefore graded on work done in the seminar (including reading, timely presentation of sections of the essay work, oral presentations, and a major final presentation of the project, as well as the paper itself).
Admission is by Permission of Instructor and limited to a workable size with students willing to work in groups, which includes taking each other's work seriously. Admission to the course will be determined by submissions to the instructor of either of the following: 1) a previously written course paper or early draft of the essay you will be developing in this course; or: 2) a 1500 word research proposal, including a tentative research question, suggested method, preliminary review of the literature, and a brief statement of why you are passionate about this subject. These application materials may be submitted at any time after the beginning of pre-term registration. The final due date is the last day of classes in the fall semester. Those admitted will be contacted either for an interview or for notification of acceptance. Students off campus in the fall are urged to apply at the due date, though they will be given special consideration for inclusion if they cannot. Students unable to present the application materials in the fall may have until the first day of class in the spring semester (on the risk of the class being filled).
