Honors Program

Beyond the Classroom


Senior Honors Thesis

The optional senior Honors thesis is a 10-credit independent project. It may be a research paper or creative project and is completed under the direction of a faculty member. Examples of previous theses include traditional research papers, film festivals, marketing campaigns and novels.

 

Undergraduate Student Conference

Each spring, the Honors Programs hosts the Undergraduate Student Conference, where students have the opportunity to present their senior Honors thesis or scholarly research paper or project.


Study Away / Study Abroad

The Honors Program encourages students to expand their perspectives by studying away, and will assist students in selecting the right opportunity.



Ashley Meinke"Doing my senior Honors thesis was probably the most beneficial thing I did during my college career. It allowed me to utilize the skills/knowledge I acquired from my courses, and helped me grow and learn about myself. Completing an Honors thesis is not just an educational achievement, it's a life achievement."

- Ashley Meinke

Ashley is seen here walking the red carpet at the first Student Film Festival; a project she coordinated and directed for her senior Honors thesis at Kent State Stark.
