This course offers English and English-Journalism majors a capstone experience that synthesizes the specific skills and interests they have developed over the course of their studies. The final thesis will be the equivalent of a substantial professional publication in the student’s field – an academic article or longform piece of journalism. Students will read deeply in the theory and practice of professional research in their field (literature or journalism), leading to a detailed proposal, approved and supervised by the instructor, for the project they will carry out in the second part. English and English-Journalism students will be enrolled in a single tutorial in order to take advantage of the shared and complementary skills of these two disciplines.

Skill Level: Beginner
