Planning Your Thesis

Because a Thesis Project is the culmination of your undergraduate career at Syracuse, the planning process should ideally begin in your first year.  This is an opportunity for you to explore your professional and academic interests, make connections, ask questions, and gather ideas.

The first place to start is just where you are: explore what opportunities there are in your major(s); what are other students doing or what have past students accomplished? What labs and research centers are out there on campus? Connect with people working in those spaces and begin reading papers, viewing works, taking classes that expand on those interests or perhaps add an interdisciplinary lens to them.
