Thesis Guidelines

The University Honors thesis project involves substantive, in-depth study/creative activity under close supervision of a faculty mentor. There is no specific required format or length for your honors project, however, likely options are a formal research paper (e.g. a thesis) or a creative activity/production (e.g., a work/works of fine or performing art; a media production; literary, musical or dramatic composition/s). You will negotiate the specific format and expectations of this project with the faculty advisor/mentor you select to work with you. However, one common feature of all honors projects is that they must involve some form of public presentation appropriate to your discipline (e.g., to peers in your discipline or the honors program, to a class, at a conference, as a recital or opening).

For more information refer to the Thesis Handbook.

Collaborative projects of an interdisciplinary nature are strongly encouraged. Students who wish to pursue such a project should submit individual proposals.

Attach proposals to the UHON 499 Thesis/Project form.
