All students in the University Honors Program will complete an Honors Project that can be viewed as a capstone activity. This project can take many forms, given the diversity of academic disciplines that exist in our university. Common themes for the project will be: independent study, close supervision of a faculty member, and final documentation (written thesis, video or audio record of performance) of the project. Academic credit for the Honors Projects will be given and will be specified by individual colleges working with the University Honors Program Office.
Students share their completed projects with the university community in the late spring of each academic year. The event is open to the public and involves a poster presentation of each project.
