PCON 499 - Honors Seminar in Peace and Conflict Studies

Students qualified to pursue honors or high honors can take this advanced seminar in their spring of their senior year to enhance and extend the thesis they have already begun in PCON 479. Students enrolled in the PCON 499 seminar undertake a process that models the experience of researching, writing, and orally defending a graduate-level master’s thesis of 50 pages or more. Students are expected to enrich the empirical, methodological, and theoretical dimensions of their project, aiming to produce a final piece of research that could be successfully submitted to a peer-reviewed academic journal for publication. At the end of the term, students orally defend their thesis in front of the PCON faculty and other seminar students, responding to questions for approximately a one-hour period. PCON majors and minors who are not pursuing honors may also enroll in this seminar as a PCON elective to conduct independent research by permission of the program director and seminar instructor.
