The JP is a year long process. Just because it is due in April does not mean you should put it off until the Spring. Most likely this size of a project is new to you and a bit daunting. One of the hardest things to do is to pick the topic.
Is the topic feasible ?
There are many really interesting engaging fun topics for which there is little to no data and even less literature available. Some things to keep in mind when thinking through topic selection.
My job is to help you find what you need to do your work. Book an appointment, drop by my office, send an email or give a call. I am here to work with you throughout the JP process. Below is a link to the JIW handbook that includes deadlines and advise.
Writing a senior theses will be like a large JP, for those of you that did JPs, or something entirely new for those who did not do JPs.
I am here to work with you to get what you need to do you work. Please come by, email me, book an appointment or call me if you have questions or if I can be of help.
Some of you can get lockers in Firestone. Seniors in African American Studies, Anthropology, Classics, Comparative Literature, Economics, English, French & Italian, German, History, Near Eastern Studies, Philosophy, Politics, Religion, Slavic Languages & Literatures, Sociology, Spanish & Portuguese, or Woodrow Wilson School are eligible for a locker in Firestone Library. The link to apply is below.
Many of you are getting a certificate of finance. Outside of the certificates' course work, there is an independent project requirement.
I can help you find the library resources you need. Princeton has extensive data resources and access to vast amounts of literature. Please reach out to me as you are investigating topics and refining your ideas.
The requirements for the independent project are detailed below and this is taken from the BCF website.
Deadline for the independent work:
