The Integrated Studies degree is a writing-intensive major that requires the completion of a senior thesis. This should be a challenging, rewarding process that allows you to explore an academic field of study that intersects with your two emphases. For example, if a student has Spanish and Communication emphases, they might write a thesis addressing how to market to the growing Latino population in the United States.
Above all, make your research and writing as enjoyable a process as possible!
