There are two options for the senior requirement. Majors may choose a year-long senior essay or project and take the senior colloquium (ER&M 491) on theoretical and methodological issues in the fall and then complete the requirement by writing a senior essay in the senior project seminar (ER&M 492) during the spring term.
Alternatively, students may take two upper-level ER&M seminars and write a 20-25 page senior essay in one of these seminars, while completing all course requirements.
Finally, all students will take two additional electives to complete the twelve courses.
See YCPS for more details.
