2024-25 Thesis Process

Please see the information below for registering, submitting, and presenting your senior thesis in the Economics & Business Department.


Rising seniors who are declared majors in the Economics and Business Department can use the information below for registering for their two thesis blocks in the 2024-25 academic year.

NOTE: If you are a declared major in the Economics and Business Dept., and you are writing a thesis in the Economics and Business Dept. in 2024-25, you will need to complete, save to your computer, and send this 2024-25 Thesis Registration word document form to Nancy Heinecke at nheinecke@coloradocollege.edu by 

2024-25 DRAFT Course Schedules: The draft course schedules below are included here as tools to help rising seniors in planning next year's schedule - and to help in the completion of the 2024-25 Thesis Registration form, above.

Completed thesis registration forms MUST be emailed to Nancy Heinecke in order for rising seniors to register their two senior-year thesis blocks preferences. If we do not receive your form, you will not be assigned a thesis advisor and we will not know to register you for thesis.

E&B Dept. faculty advising thesis will decide thesis students in the last week of preregistration. Students will be notified of their assigned thesis blocks and thesis advisor on  

REMEMBER! Thesis is a 2-block class, that is supervised by a faculty thesis advisor during blocks 1-6.  students must meet the prerequisites for thesis prior to the start of the first thesis block. No points are needed for thesis. During preregistration, you will enter "GS391" in both thesis blocks you are assigned. All full-time faculty in the Economics and Business Department will supervise thesis students. If you want to work with a specific professor as your Thesis Advisor, contact them to indicate your interest. Check out this list of Faculty Thesis Advisor Areas of Interest and Research.


Economics & Business Department theses are turned in via online submission through Digital CC Thesis Submission. Log in using your normal CC single-sign-on credentials and complete the entry fields to submit your thesis.

Sometimes your thesis will load, but the platform gives an error message so be sure to check if it did load. Search Digital CC submitted theses, just in case.

If you need help troubleshooting submitting your thesis, take a look at this Tutt Library Research Guides: Thesis Submission Guidelines web page. Contact Cate Guenther at x6875 {(719) 389-6875} with questions or if the system is not working. Then be sure to email the PDF version of your thesis to Cate Guenther and cc your thesis advisor with an explanation of the difficulty.

It is best practice, due to the "glitchy-ness of the process at this time," even if you believe you are successful with uploading your thesis, to email your thesis advisor the PDF version of your thesis. 


Each year the Economics & Business Department holds its annual Spring Research Symposium on the first Friday of Block 8, as an opportunity for all students who have created research during the academic year to present their research. 

Many thesis students are required to present their thesis for a grade and many faculty thesis advisors will expect that presentation to occur at the Symposium.
