Thesis 2

Historic Preservation

Spring 2013

Advisors from the Faculty

The thesis was a clear, well-researched substantial argument in support of a position on a question of general interest in the field of historic preservation. Students began work on their theses in the fall without registering for a course. There were two group meetings for all students and faculty in the fall semester to give students a chance to articulate and refine their thesis topic, decide on a faculty advisor and begin research to answer their thesis question. In the spring semester students registered for Thesis 2 and presented again to all members of the faculty to assess progress on their thesis. In April, the students met for an hour with a jury of their advisor and readers to defend their thesis and hone their thoughts on the topic.
