Who can be my faculty advisor?
International Studies majors wishing to complete an IS honors thesis must have as a thesis advisor a member of the University’s research-active faculty (either tenure or career line) with a demonstrated record of scholarly publication and with expertise in the chosen area of inquiry. Co-advisors are acceptable, where appropriate, to meet these criteria.
