Departmental Honors Thesis

If you’re thinking about going to graduate school, consider writing an Honors Thesis to help you meet that goal. You don’t have to be in an honors program to complete an Honors Thesis. Some departments have established processes for completing your thesis, and others will work with you individually to develop a plan.  The Honors Faculty Committee might play a part in determining your process.

Many departments offer Honors Thesis and honors research programs, most of which meet certain requirements for those students who are also enrolled in the University Honors College or the College of Agriculture Dean’s Scholars Program. Select your department of interest below to learn more.

If your department does not have an honors thesis or program option, ask your academic advisor for more information about getting involved in undergraduate research and/or a scholarly project.
