​​​​​Honors Project Guidelines and Forms

The final project is an in-depth research, writing, and/or creative work. It represents the culmination and integration of what you have learned during your undergraduate education.

As an independent study, the final project will give you the opportunity to pursue and explore in detail a topic of interest under the supervision of a faculty advisor. The best preparation for the project is solid grounding in the field and familiarity with the research approaches of that discipline.


The final project should be completed one semester prior to graduation unless otherwise arranged with the Honors Program Chair.
