Pass/fail only. Section 2 for students in the social sciences who are writing a research or project thesis.
This course engages students in the conceptual and technical processes leading to a thesis: articulating a core problem, reviewing appropriate literatures, designing effective methods, and constructing persuasive analyses. Focusing on students' own work, the seminar examines the conventions of scholarly discourse, strategies of analysis and argumentation, and the ways in which writing can serve as a means to discover ideas. The thesis process in Gallatin is reviewed and clarified. Sections of the course focus on different thesis formats (research, artistic, project) and broad disciplinary categories (arts, humanities, social sciences), but all take the student to the stage of preparing a thesis proposal.
