The Honors Research/Creative Project may be interpreted in one of three ways: students may take a research or creative project that was initiated in a previous academic course and expand upon it under the guidance of a faculty mentor, a student may begin independent/guided research on a new project with the intent to continue beyond the credited semester, or students may take HONR 312 concurrently with another course in which they are enrolled and work with the instructor of that course to complete an additional assignment. Students must select and successfully complete the initial terms/proposal of the Honors 312 contract by the end of the previous semester in order to be enrolled in the course.
This course is really a set of individual consultation sessions meant to prepare students for completing a semester-long Honors thesis project. Students should plan to enroll in HONR 490 during a semester prior to completing the actual thesis. Please see the FAQs tab for more information.
If you wish to take a semester off, please fill out the form below and turn it in to Joan Wallace in the Honors House.
The Honors College offers some flexibility when it comes to completing all of the required courses. This is assessed on a case by case basis and waivers or substitutions must be approved by Dr. Buss.
The Honors College is happy to support undergraduate research and creative projects in their many forms, whether it be travel to academic conferences, laboratory research, creative writing workshops, fine art exhibitions, symposia, or more.
