Senior Honors Thesis

The optional senior Honors thesis is a 6-credit hour independent project. It may be a research paper or creative project and is completed under the direction of a faculty member. Examples of previous theses include traditional research papers, film festivals, marketing campaigns and novels.


Doing my senior Honors thesis was probably the most beneficial thing I did during my college career. It allowed me to utilize the skills/knowledge I acquired from my courses, and helped me grow and learn about myself. Completing an Honors thesis is not just an educational achievement, it's a life achievement.
~ Ashley (Meinke) McComb
