This session will address questions such as the scope, the purpose, and
the structure of the senior thesis. It will focus on strategies for
developing a good topic (finding a manageable and interesting question
and case selection) as well as finding an advisor. It will also look
into research resources available at Harvard (navigating Hollis,
e-resources, reference works, document collections) and will include an
introduction by a Harvard librarian.
Join us for the series of workshops designed to help juniors with the
process of formulating a thesis topic, tackling research questions, and
elaborating grant proposals for summer thesis research. In vibrant
sessions led by CES graduate affiliates, students develop a set of
skills instrumental for writing a successful senior thesis.
