The student will develop a specific focus related to the NEXA theme. In order to achieve sufficient depth and competence in the focus of interest, the student will prepare a 3-4 semester study plan. The study plan should define courses relevant to the specific topic, and show how a core group of courses can be integrated around and build toward the proposed theme. The student will work with a NEXA faculty member in the preparation of the study plan. Upon approval of the study plan by the NEXA steering committee, the student will be admitted to the major.
In order to complete the NEXA major, the student will consult with two faculty members: one to help with the study plan and one to help with the senior thesis. On occasion, one faculty person may serve both these functions. The student should consult with the NEXA advising coordinator in order to choose the most appropriate faculty member(s).
The culminating experience of the NEXA concentration, and in many ways the most important part of the major, is the senior thesis. The senior thesis is an in-depth, original exploration of the specific theme (or aspect of the theme) chosen earlier by the student. At the end of the junior year, and with the help of the NEXA advising coordinator, the student will choose a specific faculty member to serve as the thesis adviser. Two other faculty members are chosen to constitute the thesis committee. A thesis proposal which clearly delineates the proposed course of study leading to the thesis is submitted and approved by the NEXA steering committee. The committee of three advisers is responsible for assisting the student in the preparation of the thesis. Final approval is made by the NEXA steering committee.
Junior Year, First Semester. Student works with an appropriate NEXA faculty member to produce a study plan.
Junior Year, Second Semester. With the aid of the NEXA advising coordinator, the student will choose a faculty member to serve as thesis adviser. The NEXA steering committee must approve the choice of thesis adviser.

Senior Year, Second Semester. Enrolled in NEXA 698. Thesis completed and approved by the thesis committee. Course work completed.
