The Senior Honors Thesis is the culmination of the Honors undergraduate experience allowing students to synthesize learning using critical analysis and logical thinking. Students will complete an independent research and/or creative project under the direction of a primary Thesis Advisor and the Honors Director. The Thesis Advisor is a faculty member with expertise in a discipline closely related to the topic of the thesis project. Students submit a written thesis and deliver a public oral presentation of their work.

In order to guide students through this process, many materials have been gathered here for your convenience. Below you will find a copy of the Honors Thesis Guidebook, a compilation of many resources and instructions which are useful to the process of completing a thesis. You will also find a selection of AACU Rubrics, which students will parse through and select from when deciding how their thesis should best be judged.
