ENG 450 Senior Thesis, 3 credits

Students will write an independently chosen critical or creative thesis under the careful supervision of a faculty mentor. For critical theses, students will master all the phases of the research process, including the gathering of research from traditional and electronic bibliographical sources, standard systems of bibliographical citation, and organization of a developed and original argument. For creative theses, students will master all phases of the creative process, including drafting, work-shopping, and revising based on their faculty mentor’s feedback. This course may be taken twice for a total of six credits toward the degree if the student is completing both the English major and the Creative Writing minor.

Prerequisites: ENG Core. Students may only complete a creative thesis if they are on the major’s writing track or completing either track in the Writing Minor.
