Senior Essay Guide

The senior essay provides you with a unique opportunity to pursue an independent research project of your own interest.

The following pages will summarize some important points about how to go about the writing process.  Consider this the syllabus for the year – even if it isn’t specifically cited, you should be following it.

Good luck in your reading, research, and writing!  If you have questions about the senior essay process (or just want to vent), write an email to the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Harry “Skip” Stout at harry.stout@yale.edu.
