Senior Honors Project

Each senior honors student works closely with a faculty advisor to plan and execute a final project of his or her choice. Students have virtually complete freedom in their choice of topic, but most opt for a topic within their majors. Interdisciplinary topics are entirely acceptable. This project is worth at least 3 semester-hours of credit, and will normally take the form of an independent study (HON 495); however, students who are already required to do an appropriate senior project for their major may, with approval, submit this as their honors project instead. All honors projects must be approved and evaluated by the Honors Curriculum Committee.
