The Integrated Studies degree is a writing-intensive major that culminates in the student's senior thesis. This should be a challenging, rewarding process that allows the student to explore an academic field of study that intersects with the student's 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! See this helpful advice. Also, be sure to check out the examples of recent senior theses below and in UVU's digital archive.Senior Thesis Examples
One of the things that makes Integrated Studies a unique degree is how enables students to integrate two unique areas of study. As a Senior in Integrated Studies you will demonstrate that integration by completing a Senior Thesis. The Senior Thesis presents research that is possible because of the efforts you've made to understand two completely different disciplines.
Here are some examples of our student's senior thesis work. You will need adobe reader to view these examples. A free download of Adobe Reader is available here.
