Students often wonder about how to plan for their senior thesis. The answer is simple: find out who is teaching the Senior Thesis, and plan for when you can take the thesis with the professor who is teaching your topic of most interest. How do you find out that schedule: easy. It’s posted on the departmental website, on the bulletin board outside the History offices in Columbine, or just ask any professor about the schedule.
For your convenience, I’ll also post it here, and occasionally repost it. Here is the Senior Thesis Schedule for next semester and next school year.
