Honors With Distinction For Students Majoring In LAS Departments

In Fall 2019, the Honors Program, in collaboration with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, launched a new opportunity for juniors and seniors majoring in LAS departments: Honors students who develop and successfully complete a multi-semester Honors thesis mentored by a full-time faculty member will be awarded the designation of having completed the Bradley University Honors Program “with Distinction.” The thesis satisfies the Honors Jr./Sr. Project requirement and enhances graduate school applications and opportunities for professional employment. For the 2019-2020 academic year, three projects have each been awarded an honorarium for the faculty member and thesis-related expenses for the student. Congratulations to the following students:
