Senior Honors Thesis

Are you ready for a challenge? While all majors participate in a fall capstone course,  outstanding majors will be invited to participate in the Department Honors Program. The Honors Program offers students the opportunity to work closely with a faculty mentor and pursue original scholarly research that results in an honors thesis. These students are also invited to share meals with their mentors and other faculty and to present their thesis at a public forum. Students who complete the program will receive “Honors” in their official transcripts. Students who write truly exceptional theses will be awarded “Distinction” in addition to “Honors.” The Department of Spanish and Portuguese also awards a prize annually for the best thesis. These are the 2019 honors thesis writers.
