Senior Tutorial

In addition to courses and internships, students have the opportunity to conduct research in the fine arts through the Senior Tutorial. The tutorial is the capstone of a Chatham education, this two semester independent research/portfolio project is conducted in collaboration with a faculty member during the senior year. Chatham is one of the few universities across the country that offers such an independent and student-driven program.
