Senior Comprehensive Projects

Students share their experiences with “The Comp”, Allegheny College’s Senior Comprehensive Project.

Under the guidance of a faculty advisor in his or her major field, every student completes the Senior Project, a significant piece of original scholarly work with a creative, analytical or experimental focus. The project mirrors a master’s thesis, demonstrating the ability to complete a major assignment, to work independently, to analyze and synthesize information and to write and speak persuasively.
