The senior project is a 4-credit independent research or artistic project that a student pursues under the guidance of a faculty mentor generally in the final semester before graduation. In some cases, a student may choose to do a senior project in his/her penultimate semester and draw that project into the senior colloquium discussion. Senior projects may include, but are not limited to, a paper based on original research, a written assessment of a community-learning initiative, an artistic project such as a film or novel, etc. Successful completion of the senior project is noted in two ways: the student receives a letter grade for the course titled, “Senior Project,” and upon graduation a notation appears on the transcript listing the title of the senior project. Senior projects deemed exceptional by the Gallatin Senior Project Committee will be awarded honors.
