Research or creative project
The Honors Program, having enhanced each stage of a student’s course of study, culminates in a capstone project. During the junior or senior year, each Honors student, in consultation with a professor in the major field, completes an individualized project that demonstrates excellence in the academic major.
The Honors Program has been carefully designed so that it will not lengthen a student’s course of study. While the Honors classes emphasize active learning, discussion, and interpretation, they do not require more work quantitatively and do not use a more demanding grading scale.
