The Senior Thesis Program in Communication Studies, formerly known as the “Senior Honors Program” has been expanded and renamed to accommodate all Communication Studies majors regardless of their GPA. The (newly named) Senior Thesis Program offers an opportunity for students with strong academic records and a desire to pursue individual scholarly research to write a senior thesis during their Senior year.
Students accepted into the Senior Thesis Program take a year-long seminar during their Senior year (Communication Studies 491/492 OR 451/452) while conducting research and writing a thesis. COMM 451/491 will fulfill the Senior Capstone requirement and COMM 452/492 will fulfill the COMM ULWR requirement for the major. Upon completion of the Senior Thesis Program, students who meet the GPA requirements will receive an Honors distinction.
Applications for admission into the Senior Thesis Program in Communication Studies are accepted until March 15 of a student's junior year.
