European Studies Senior Thesis II
The senior thesis allows selected students to pursue original research based upon a research proposal. A senior thesis is restricted to students in the European Studies program who possess a minimum 3.50 GPA-in-major, have completed EUR 491, and have their research proposal accepted by a Department panel. Students successfully conclude POS 492 with the completion of an 8,000-word thesis and a public defense. A completed senior thesis substitutes for the Bulgarian State Exam in European Studies.
