The senior thesis: Quintessentially Princeton
The April 13 issue of the Princeton Weekly Bulletin included three profiles of students and their senior theses: a religion major who produced a documentary chronicling spiritual renewal practices in Mozambique; an astrophysical sciences student in search of elusive answers to questions about dark energy; and a mechanical and aerospace engineer who explored the technical and political factors involved in developing clean energy. Those stories can be found at www.princeton.edu/pr/pwb/volume98/issue23/thesis/.
This issue profiles two more students finishing their independent work this spring: a mathematics student whose theatrical pursuits led him to develop a creative thesis about an unusual clown; and a politics major who examined how African American students’ experiences in public schools affect their view of government.
