POLS 495 Comprehensive Seminar

Politics majors are required to take Politics 495 in fulfillment of their senior comprehensive obligation. They therefore should have met or be in the process of meeting all requirements for the major. The Seminar meets in the spring semester but students will be expected to submit proposals for their research papers in the fall semester prior to the actual meeting of the Seminar. The Seminar itself will engage all students in an analytical review of a wide range of materials from various aspects of the discipline and will require that students write a major research paper in one particular sub-discipline of the field. Students qualifying for College Honors will be given an opportunity to write research papers that will be evaluated by the department for honors.
