The Honors Thesis is a valuable year-long experience for students who want to complete an independent research project, mentored by faculty in the student’s major. Students who complete the Honors Thesis graduate with Departmental Honors in the major or majors in which the thesis is written.
To be eligible to write an Honors Thesis, students are generally expected to have an overall GPA of 3.4, and a GPA of 3.5 in the major for which the student is writing for honors. Departments may make exceptions to the GPA threshold on a case-by-case basis where warranted. For more information about the Senior Honors Thesis, connect with the Office of Academic Enrichment.
