Senior research thesis on a problem of fundamental geographic significance, supervised by faculty member; must include a written final project report.
The Department is revising its major requirements which will include an option for BA and BS degrees with distinction, both of which will require a senior thesis. Geography already has another course number (GEOG 498) for "Undergraduate Research".
The only student work in this project is the thesis, and the grade is based solely on the "quality of the thesis". As such, I don't have a problem with the minimal grading sections in this proposal.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
