The Honors Thesis

In their final year all Honors College students complete a thesis, a serious research project representing a valuable opportunity for Honors students to work closely with a faculty advisor from their major department. Students generally take 8 credits of HON 403 over two terms to complete their thesis.

Thesis Requirements

Students are required to first take the 4-credit HON 403 Thesis: Prospectus seminar, in which they identify their thesis advisor and write their thesis prospectus. Upon completing HON 403 Prospectus with a passing grade, the student will then enroll in one or more of the 4-credit HON 403 Thesis Continuation sections, in which they will complete their thesis.
