I'm Just a Boy Who Can't Say No...

Can't say no to teaching extra classes, that is. Well, it is a low-workload seminar. And *somebody* should smooth the path so that interdisciplinary social science students who want to finish their theses next fall to be able to do so. And if not me, who? There's no money in the budget to actually pay somebody to do it, and I'd feel uneasy about trying to get anybody else to "volunteer":

However, some people are very happy about this:

Good news! An honors thesis-writing seminar will be offered next fall by Prof. Brad DeLong. This seminar will bring students together from DS, LAS, MES, PACS and PEIS into a small group format for support and assistance with writing the honors thesis. Chair DeLong will be your first reader. You still get to choose your second reader, a faculty mentor who is familiar with your topic who will guide your research.

To enroll in the fall H195 seminar, you must:

1. Have completed IAS 118 or IAS 102, be currently enrolled in IAS 102, or be planning to take IAS 102 in the summer.
2. Have a viable research prospectus by the first day of the fall semester.
3. Will have at least a 3.5 cumulative and 3.6 major GPA by graduation.

Once written, you can send your completed research prospectus to Prof. DeLong (jbdelong@berkeley.edu).

The date and time of the class is yet to be determined, but I will email it to this list-serve as soon as it is scheduled.
