FTT Senior Thesis
The FTT Senior Thesis Program enables students to undertake a capstone passion project of their choice while working closely with their favorite professors across the course of their final academic year. Students can write film, TV, or theatre analysis or history; produce a short film; undertake a screenwriting or playwriting project; invent a digital media resource; or explore any high-level FTT project that they can imagine. Students major in FTT because they love film, television, and theatre; the Senior Thesis gives them the ultimate chance to actualize that passion at Notre Dame.
FTT majors are invited to apply in spring of their junior year to complete the two-semester thesis project during their senior year. Upon completion of the thesis project and all requirements in their senior year, students will be eligible to receive the Honors designation upon graduation, provided their project is approved for that designation by the FTT Thesis & Honors Committee.
For students interested in applying for the 2021-22 Senior Thesis program, please see the guidelines linked below and note the proposal deadline of March 26, 2021. Please direct any questions about the Senior Thesis Program to the current director, Christine Becker.
