Honors Projects

graduate.jpgAn Honors Project is designed to allow students the opportunity to conduct advanced research in their chosen discipline. The Honors Project culminates in graduating "with distinction" and special recognition during graduation ceremonies. The project is a four-semester program of individual research directed by a faculty member in the student's academic major and supported by an Honors Project Committee.


In order to be eligible for an Honors Project, a student must meet the following criteria:
   1) Have completed 60 hours by the beginning of the first semester of the project,

   2) Have completed 6 hours in their major area, and

   3) Maintain an Overall GPA of 3.5 with a GPA of 3.75 in the student's major.


*Individual schools or departments may have additional criteria. Consult with your Project Supervisor.

The project must be completed in the student's major.

The project is initiated with the development of a formal written proposal during the first semester. An example of a successful proposal is available here.
