Why Senior Projects Might Not Be Approved

 

Keep in mind that all projects and research topics must be submitted to the Senior Project Committee and approved before any work can begin.  The following are possible reasons why a project or research topic may not be approved.  


 

PAPER TOPIC:

 

  • Not an argumentative topic--a position cannot be established and/or argued

  • Too broad – page allotment insufficient to cover the information available

  • Too narrow – not enough sources to support

  • Too shallow – no intellectual stretch for the student

 

PROJECT/FIELD WORK

 

  • Too vague--not clear what the intended outcome should be

  • Project would not require 20 hours of outside work

  • No venue listed

  • No potential mentor listed or mentor potential is limited

  • Cost is perceived as too high

  • Age/Legal Barriers

  • Too complex – insufficient background

  • No hands-on activity; “hanging out” or simply making observations is not enough of a stretch

  • Not enough of a stretch; serving as an “assistant” or an “observer” without any direct, hands-on involvement for the student

  • Dangerous

  • Not “student friendly”
