Some of our students receive fellowships to pursue their research interest. Jason Frank, '22, was one of 31 undergraduate students awarded his fellowship through a collaborative effort between the Fellowships Advising Office and the Undergraduate Research and Creative Collaborations Office. He wants to know why there are no famous gay male comedians.
Writing an honors thesis offers students the opportunity to execute a substantial independent research project and to be considered for a bachelor's degree with honors by the Department of Anthropology, while receiving course credit. Sometimes a student's research interest is more suited to an independent study, which can be conducted in a semester by working one on one with a faculty member on a particular topic, and receiving course credit by enrolling in either Anth 98a or Anth 98b.
