Senior Independent Work

Independent work is designed to afford concentrators the opportunity to identify and explore their research interests in depth. Students are expected to develop a carefully reasoned exposition that critically analyzes a problem using basic principles of economics. Unlike junior independent work, the senior thesis is expected to be more extensive, with a topic of greater scope and, correspondingly broader analysis and interpretation.
