Senior Project Requirement Resources

COMS 460 Undergraduate Seminar

  1. Choose your advisor. Complete the Communication Studies Senior Project Advising Agreement Form and submit it to your COMS 460 professor
  2. Human Subjects. Projects such as surveys and questionnaires that involve the study of human subjects will need to complete the Printable Human Subjects Research Approval Form and submit it to the office of the Human Subjects Committee (043-353). Plan to complete this step early as the approval process can take up to two weeks and you will need time to administer your tests. 
  3. Ask for Help! Visit your project advisor and the Writing Center for answers and direction

Submitting Your Senior Project

  3. Bind it. Purchase a black folder from the bookstore. Let the staff know you are submitting your senior project and they will direct you to the proper folder.
