Resources

The most important resource to consult in writing your thesis are the Honors Thesis Guidelines from the Committee on Undergraduate Honors. These guidelines discuss what is involved in preparing a thesis proposal, due dates, thesis requirements, and thesis evaluation.

Baruch College also offers several other resources useful to thesis writers:

  • The Baruch Writing Center offers free writing support to all students!

He also maintains a website on Undergraduate Honors Theses, with many valuable resources.
  • Prof. David Rosenberg (David.Rosenberg@baruch.cuny.edu), Chair of the Committee on Undergraduate Honors, can answer questions related to the requirements and expectations of writing a thesis.
  • Prof. Thomas Halper (Thomas.Halper@baruch.cuny.edu), Honors Thesis Liaison for Political Science, can give general academic advice and help you find an appropriate faculty mentor.
