The Senior Thesis Project

The senior thesis and the defense of that thesis in the baccalaureate exam are the final graduation requirements. Students compose a committee of three faculty members, one of whom will sponsor the senior thesis project. In close consultation with the thesis sponsor, the student spends the bulk of his/her final year completing the project that will be the culmination and crowning achievement of a New College career.

In the oral baccalaureate examination, the student defends the thesis in front of his/her committee, giving faculty the opportunity to evaluate performance on the thesis, in the student's area of concentration and overall.

Sample titles of senior thesis projects are provided in the description of each of the academic disciplines.
