Honors in Modern Culture and Media

Honors Director for 2016-2017
Professor Ellen Rooney

Students wishing to culminate the concentration with a thesis and receive the degree with Honors may apply for department approval to produce a creative, critical, or theoretical work in the senior year.

The thesis experience allows a student to get to know, and work closely with, a faculty member. The MCM Honors Program is intellectually demanding and time-consuming; students should be willing to devote a substantial part of their senior year to the thesis. Students work under the guidance of a department faculty advisor and second reader. Where appropriate, the advisor or the reader, but not both, may be in another department.
