Senior Luther English majors will publicly present their completed senior paper projects on May 14, 2014 in Main 111, Main 112, Main 113 and Main 116B. Fellow students and faculty will gather, snack on appetizers, listened to the formal oral presentations, and ask questions about student’s research and writing.
Together with the required Senior Seminar, the Senior Project is the English major’s culminating experience. Projects build upon the students’ previous experience with scholarly research, creative writing, or the secondary education program, and include both a substantial piece of writing and an oral presentation. Registration is completed during the term preceding the semester in which the project is begun.
English Senior Projects take many forms: some build upon a particular piece of previous work; some involve new materials or fields of inquiry; some are completed in one semester, some require a year-long commitment; projects earn one, two, or four credits. All projects are done under the supervision of an assigned faculty advisor, and all projects are evaluated by at least two faculty readers.
