In addition, the student may get to know the research profiles of departmental faculty as well as the courses that they offer both at the undergraduate level and in graduate seminars; undergraduates are occasionally admitted to graduate seminars, and they are always welcome to ask for a syllabus and attend a session by arrangement with the professor.
Consider also the topics developed by seniors in honors projects from recent years (see below).
(Restrictions may apply in the case of cross-listed courses not taught Penn’s Classical Studies department.
This option is not open for courses taken abroad, such as in Athens or Rome.) It is envisaged that during the senior fall the student will enroll in ANCH/CLST 399 Independent Study either with the advisor or with the undergraduate chair and will meet with them as often as is agreed upon.
If the advisor is due to be on leave in the fall, the student may still name him/her as the advisor, conditional upon having had two or more research-consultations with him/her during the spring prior to submission of the proposal; in this case, the official advisor during the fall will be the undergraduate chair.
