Brian James Schill
As the Honors Program's Undergraduate Research Coordinator I primarily assist seniors with their Senior Honors Theses, helping them transition out of undergraduate study and typically into graduate or professional school. I also teach several courses each semester and am involved in undergraduate research initiatives across campus. My academic and research interests include Literary Theory and Criticism, Media Studies, and Cultural Studies.
