Home > Thesis
The Senior Honors Thesis is the culmination of your Honors College experience, emphasizing critical thinking, writing and independent, creative work. Since Thesis constitutes six semester hours of the baccalaureate degree program, it should reflect a significant time commitment, be of high quality and demonstrate personal intellectual growth. Your thesis may relate to your major, but it does not have to. You are encouraged to select a topic that you find exciting and satisfying, and that will allow you to be creative.
Honors Thesis Registration
The class numbers used for thesis are: IDH 5975 for Honors Thesis and IDH 5956 for Honors Project. Students completing a two-semester thesis will take on semester of IDH 5965 (FKL Capstone) and one semester of IDH 5975 (FKL Writing Intensive), effective Summer 2013, and those approved to complete a three-semester thesis will take IDH 4970 for the third semester.
In order to be registered for Honors Thesis and Honors Project, students are required to complete the online Thesis Registration Request Form located under Online Forms. Once the form has been received, an Honors staff member will enroll the student in the appropriate course.
The Thesis Registration Request Form is needed because Honors staff need to verify:
1.That student has earned the minimum number of hours (90) required to enroll in the first semester of Thesis.
2.That student has submitted the Thesis Agreement Form, the Prospectus and the Prospectus Approval Form. This paperwork must be received prior to Honors staff registering a student for the second semester of thesis, and the student to receive a satisfactory (“S”) grade.
3.That the Thesis Directors for students completing a three-semester thesis have submitted a “Satisfactory” by the last day of classes for the 2nd semester of thesis enrollment.
