Honors Thesis

In their senior year, students research and write an Honors Thesis on a topic in their major discipline under the guidance of a faculty member in the major department. The Honors Thesis is a substantial project that may be empirical, creative, critical, or analytical. It may also embody critical analysis of the results of experiments undertaken by the student. The Honors Thesis is a capstone experience that helps honors students focus their interests, gain perspective in their major field of study, develop basic scholarly skills, nurture their creativity, and synthesize their educational experiences to date.

Students can find the forms and guidelines for the Honors Thesis in the Student Resources section of this website.
