Senior Thesis

The senior thesis represents the culmination of a Haverford student’s academic experience, and is one of the most important and rewarding ways that Haverford realizes its educational mission. It is an opportunity to do original research at levels usually reserved for graduate students, in partnership with faculty mentors. Haverford College is one of a very few institutions in the country that includes a senior thesis project as part of every student’s academic program.

"Two-Minute Thesis" is a video series produced by the Haverford College Libraries. Haverford senior thesis writers briefly discuss their theses, the research process, and share the ups and downs of their thesis-writing experience. Watch now»
