Department Honors Projects

  • Students with a GPA of 3.5 or higher may participate in a Department Honors Project during their senior year.  These year-long projects offer students the opportunity of researching a topic that interests them in a focused way that cannot be completed in a classroom setting.
  • The proposal for these projects should be developed during the semester prior to beginning the project. NOTE: these deadlines differ for students graduating in December and May. The proposal must be approved by the sponsoring faculty member and the department chair before the beginning of the project.
