Departmental honors and honors in interdisciplinary majors are awarded for outstanding performance in writing a senior thesis or in conducting senior research.

Honors Recipients

Completing an honors thesis is a significant achievement. These intensive projects take many forms, from laboratory experiments to historical research projects to creative artistic endeavors. Each one enables a graduating senior to demonstrate a command of scholastic work and to make a personal contribution to that scholarship.

A ceremony is usually held on campus as part of pre-Commencement festivities to honor students who completed an honors thesis. For the event, seniors are invited to create a slide that represents their project.

A very special thanks to Professor Luis Schettino who constructed the slideshows.
