Junior Thesis Proposals

Proposals are no longer required, but you may find them to be a useful tool for explaining what your project is about and what you hope to accomplish during the year.

Choosing Your Thesis Project

We recommend that once you have some prospective faculty advisors, you discuss your ideas with them sometime during the spring of your junior year. Your discussion should help you choose a project that interests you and is also doable in a year.

Advisors and Second Readers

Each thesis student has an advisor and a second reader. Your advisor need not be from the math department; they could be from another HMC department, or even another Claremont college. However, if your advisor is not from the HMC math department, you should choose a second reader who is affiliated with the department.

Notify the Thesis Coordinator as soon as you have your advisor and second reader picked out.
