ENG 438 : Senior Thesis in English

This is a multi-faceted course that studies the analyses of literary works and focuses on the recursive process of completing the senior thesis; aims to strengthen the student’s ability to research, interpret, and synthesize information; to read carefully and think critically; to write skillfully; and to develop presentation skills (via contemporary technologies). The course also gives attention to assessment tools to measure comprehension of literature studied, written about, and researched. Students explore different literary theories relevant to the variety of literature covered and engage in collaborative communication through group dynamics (i.e., oral presentations and peer-workshops) that build students’ leadership roles.

Prerequisites
