For all students enrolled in Senior I.S. for the fall semester, I.S. proposals are due the following Thursday. All seniors enrolled in I.S. for the fall should schedule appointments and discuss possible I.S. topics with at least two faculty members in the Political Science Department before they turn in their proposals.
