The major consists of three sets of requirements:
1) An Introductory Core: set of three courses (EA 10, 20, 30L)
2) A Concentration: There are two Concentrations in EA from which a student must select one in which to develop a “course plan.” For course plan guidance, select one of the two concentrations, and scroll down to see some of the current options:
3) Senior Capstones:
a) Senior thesis (EA191): Beginning with the class 0f 2013, the senior thesis will be required of all PO EA majors. It is traditionally a fall-semester project, and if a student achieves an A in the course he or she will be considered for Honors. In special circumstances the thesis can be extended to a year-long course.
b) Senior Seminar (Ea 190): All seniors are required to successfully complete the seminar in the spring semester, which is framed around a major team-based, client-driven project. Those students in class of 2012 who do not write a thesis must write a separate, significant paper for this class.
