As the centerpiece of our Research and Creative Honors Program (RH), the Honors Thesis gives undergraduates the opportunity to take their research and/or creative work to the next level.
RH students work closely with their Faculty Advisor to complete their Honors Thesis over the course of two sequential semesters. During the first semester (HON 498), students develop a comprehensive proposal for the project, which is then presented to their Honors Thesis Committee. If approved, RH students proceed to the second semester (HON 499) to complete the proposed project and ultimately defend the final Honors Thesis to their committee. RH students also present an academic poster of their Honors Thesis at the Research and Creative Honors Forum.
