Submission Instructions

During the senior year or with senior ranking, students following a BS program in geological sciences are required to undertake a senior research project with faculty supervision and submit a letter graded senior thesis report of professional quality to the GS 570 senior thesis supervisor before graduation. Honors majors theses are also submitted to the honors program as H783 honors theses. Students following a BA program in geological sciences may voluntarily do a senior thesis, following the same procedures. The senior research thesis in geological sciences meets the GEC requirements for the third writing course in English. A faculty committee reviews all submitted theses to select the Undergraduate Senior Research Award for that year. A bound paper copy of each submitted and graded thesis is deposited in the Orton Memorial Library of Geology.
