Senior Projects from the Class of 2020

The English department proudly presents Senior Projects from the Class of 2020. Among the projects are senior theses and capstone products. Students writing a thesis demonstrate their ability to create an original argument and synthesize multiple sources including secondary evidence. Students creating a capstone product investigate an inquiry question that is intellectually and emotionally engaging and culminates in academic and creative expression. Both projects show the growth of students’ thinking and writing over the course of a year and are amazing accomplishments.
