Senior Honors Portfolio
The Senior Portfolio is a graded one-credit-hour project which involves the collection of 8-10 artifacts from a student's undergraduate career accompanied by a reflective paper that explains how each artifact contributed to the student's intellectual and/or personal growth.
The Senior Portfolio provides an opportunity for students to review their work during their undergraduate experience and to select 8 -10 artifacts that provide the best evidence of meeting the following Honors College goals: academic excellence, campus and community service, global awareness, appreciation of cultural events, and personal growth.
Elements of the Portfolio
The Honors Senior Portfolio is a reflective portfolio, not a professional portfolio. The portfolio consists of two parts:
- Documentation of carefully selected milestones over the last four years in the form of 8-10 artifacts (written, visual, taped, etc.) that relate to the Honors College goals listed above. The 8-10 artifacts should consist of both academic and non-academic work as follows:
- At least 3 artifacts should be work from classes or independent study projects (papers, designs, exams, etc.)
- At least 3 artifacts should be from non-classroom activities (i.e. study away, campus activity or organization, cultural event, service project, on- or off-campus job, etc.) in the form of photos, flyers, or letters from supervisors, etc.
- The remaining artifacts will be distributed as the student feels appropriate.
Enrollment & Registration
Students must receive written permission from an instructor under whose guidance the portfolio collection and paper will be completed. This instructor will be responsible for grading the 1-credit-hour portfolio project.
