The Senior Program

Seniors in women's studies pursue a one-semester senior project that can take the form of either a written thesis or some form of performance. Students work independently on the senior project, but they are supervised by one or more faculty members. The senior project represents a culmination of each student’s undergraduate experience; it synthesizes coursework, discussion and personal reflection into a focused statement of intellectual growth and insight.

Recent senior projects include:

  • Black Girl Magic: An Exploration of Black Selfie Feminism
  • Centering the Survivor Experience: Strengthening the Institutional Response to Sexual Violence
  • Non-Gendered Fashion: Exploring the Interaction Between Clothing, Gender, and the Body
  • Radical Transparency: Student Discourse of Trigger Warnings at Hamilton College
  • Seeing Red: Examining Period Stigma on a College Campus
  • Examining Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers in Texas and Michigan from an Intersectional Perspective
  • Teaching From the Margins: An In Depth Analysis of Underrepresented Faculty Retention at Hamilton College
  • ‘Free the Bra’: A Case Study on the Influence of Brassieres on Hamilton College Students’ Gender Identity, Body Image and Self-Esteem
  • “Let’s Talk About Sex:” An analysis about Sex and Sexuality at Hamilton College
  • Re-Examining the Battlefield: Gendered Intersections of Militarization and Genocide
