Senior Thesis

The senior thesis: Quintessentially Princeton

Inspired by their experiences in and out of the classroom, on campus and abroad, Princeton seniors immerse themselves in thesis projects that are often remembered as the defining experience of their academic careers.

The University requires all students to complete a thesis, challenging them to develop as independent thinkers by pursuing original research in close collaboration with a faculty adviser. This week’s and next week’s issues of the Princeton Weekly Bulletin will profile students who have met that intellectual challenge by producing rigorous, inventive works of scholarship in subjects such as religion, astrophysical sciences, mechanical and aerospace engineering, theater and dance, and politics.
