Schedule for Presentations of Political Science Department Senior Projects April 22, 2013 Clark Hall

Posted on April 14, 2013

The Spring senior project presentations are organized to be similar to panels at a conference. Each student should plan to speak for about 10 minutes, and then there will be a short time for questions from the audience. The audience will consist of your fellow-panelists, faculty who are attending, and any friends or family that participants convince to come. There is no requirement that students present using powerpoint or other visual aids but, if they wish to do so, the rooms are equipped for projections.

The chair of each panel is responsible for keeping time and holding the presentations to the schedule.

In between the two sets of panels, dinner will be provided in the Baker-Nord Center, Room 206.

5:00 – 6:15 p.m.
