HON 498/499 and HON 391

HON 498  & HON 499  – Honors Thesis 3 credits/course 

The Honors thesis is an opportunity for students to work closely with a member of the faculty on an independent research or creative endeavor that brings their undergraduate academic experience to a conclusion. In many cases, the Honors thesis will satisfy the “capstone” general education requirement. 

HON 498 and HON 499 are required to complete the Honors Thesis requirement. The course has no meeting time except for a few “check-in” meetings with the Honors Associates. You will also have a handful of forms to hand in throughout the semesters to stay on track. Most of the course is dedicated to working with you advisor on your individual project. Your advisor will assign the grade for this course. 

HON 391 — Introduction to Thesis Research

HON 391 is a one-credit, pass/fail course offered every semester. It is designed to give students a jump-start on their thesis. The course covers all aspects of the thesis process from beginning to end. Although HON 391 is not required, we encourage all Honors students to take this course.
