Researching and writing a departmental honors thesis offers high-achieving students a way to deepen their command of an area of interest. Completing an honors thesis is a particularly good exercise if you are considering graduate school.
Many of students choose projects with both an academic and a creative component, such as a research paper coupled with a dance performance.
If you are considering an honors thesis, it’s smart to develop and refine your research interests early in your course of study, selecting classes that will provide a strong foundation for your thesis.
Talk to your academic advisor about your ideas. She can suggest potential faculty supervisors, and fill you in about the steps required to begin your thesis.
