I’m planning to write my senior essay in PLSC 480 (One-Term Senior Essay). How do I know if this is a good option for me?

The option to write your essay in PLSC 480 (One-Term Senior Essay) is an alternative for those of you who wish to devote a full semester of course work to the essay, cannot find a seminar pertinent to your topic, or are in seminars that do not require a large research paper. It is highly recommended to discuss the PLSC 480 option with your adviser before the start of the semester in which you wish to do it.
