A Look Inside the Creative Senior Thesis

June 18th, 2019

From the outset of their time at Princeton, students are encouraged and challenged to develop their scholarly interests and to evolve as independent thinkers. The culmination of this process is the senior thesis, which provides a unique opportunity for students to pursue original research and scholarship in a field of their choosing. At Princeton, every senior writes a thesis or, in the case of the arts, undertakes a creative independent project.

Integral to the senior thesis process is the opportunity to work one-on-one with a faculty member who guides the development of the project. Thesis writers and advisers agree that the most valuable outcome of the senior thesis is the chance for students to enhance skills that are the foundation of future success, including creativity, intellectual engagement, mental discipline and the ability to meet new challenges.

For those students in the Lewis Center for the Arts’ Programs in Creative Writing, Dance, Theater, Music Theater, or Visual Arts, there are several exciting ways to accomplish the thesis. In the videos linked below, meet four seniors from the Lewis Center and follow along as they pursue their creative passions — wrapped up in a senior thesis.
