Writing Intensive Course Information

STUDENT is writing an Honors Thesis on the Adoption and Safe Family Acts of 1997. She has conducted research in the congressional hearings leading up to passage and will be writing a substantial piece of original research and interpretation or primary and secondary sources. A History Honors Thesis typically consists of 3 chapters of 10-15 pages each, plus an introduction and a conclusion. Each chapter chapter (including intro and conclusion) is read by me and then revised by STUDENT in light of my written feedback and our oral discussion. As Honors theses are conducted on an individual basis, there is no peer review.
