Bear in mind that your research question and thesis premise will evolve as you progress in your research. Trying to force your research findings to fit your original question is not only unscholarly, it will result in less original and thought-provoking research outcomes.
The pages included in this guide to Senior Thesis Research are intended to direct you to helpful resources available to you through Princeton University Library.
Pro CES is proud to award the Dean Hank Dobin Prize in Community-Engaged Independent Work to students whose outstanding thesis best engages a community audience, whether through extensive research, policy recommendations, or new information and analysis.
The prize is named after former Dean Dobin, who was instrumental to the creation of the Program for Community-Engaged Scholarship during his time at Princeton.
