By the middle of spring semester junior year, Honors Students should finalize plans for capstone projects.  Each requires the completion of an original project or thesis in the student’s senior year—the Honors Program will contact all eligible students during the early part of spring semester junior year to seek applications for capstones and to provide information about specific options. Work on these projects can be counted toward the completion of Honors course requirements.

Many Honors students have taken part in the Summer Scholars Program, in which students spend the summer months engaging in faculty-mentored research, creative writing, fine and performing arts pursuits, and other scholarly endeavors. Some of these opportunities have developed into Departmental Honors and University Scholars projects.
