Senior Honors Thesis
The Senior Honors Thesis/Project is a 6-credit-hour independent project. The thesis
may be a research, creative, or applied project and is completed under the direction of a faculty member.
The six credit hours are divided over three semesters, and students typically register
for the Thesis Proposal Semester in the spring semester of their junior year. Study
abroad, student teaching, and other academic activities can alter the distribution of thesis semesters, so students planning to complete a thesis should be sure to work closely with the thesis coordinator.
The Senior Honors Thesis Handbook contains all of the detailed information required for thesis students and their advisors. The answers to frequently asked questions and the opportunity to review sample proposals will be especially helpful for students considering or just beginning thesis work. The Thesis Archive is comprised of the names, titles, and faculty advisors for every completed Senior Honors Thesis/Project and may be helpful for students interested in seeing what other students have done.
If you believe a thesis might be valuable to you but still need more information, please plan to attend one of the Senior Honors Thesis information meetings.
