The senior exercise in Philosophy is completed by either completing an additional advanced seminar or writing a senior thesis. The senior thesis culminates your philosophy career at Pomona by providing you the space to investigate a philosophical issue in depth. Grappling with an issue in depth is fascinating and enriching, and it is an experience that we want you to both enjoy and find rewarding.
