EARS 89 Thesis Research I

Research related to completion of a senior thesis. The initiative to begin a senior thesis project should come from the student, who should consult an appropriate faculty member. Conclusions from the research must presented in both written and oral form. Attendance at weekly earth sciences research seminars is required during Winter and Spring terms. Both EARS 89 and EARS 90 may be taken for course credit, but only one may count toward the major.

Students should register for EARS 89 during fall or winter of their senior year; if they desire a second course credit for thesis work, they should  register for EARS 90 in a subsequent term.  They may continue with their thesis research into a third term but cannot register for a third course credit. Normally a grade of “ON” (ongoing) will be given at the end of the term in which they registered for EARS 89; a final grade will replace the “ON” upon successful completion of the senior thesis.  Serves in satisfaction of the culminating experience requirement.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
