Honors Program Office

The mission of the University Honors Program is to help academically gifted students achieve their fullest intellectual potential, preparing them to be leaders in a world acutely in need of their talents.

Honor Student Research Project

Every Honors student's experience culminates with a senior research/thesis project. This project begins during the spring semester of the junior year, giving students 18 to 20 months to formulate and thoroughly investigate their research question or identify and develop their thesis. Each student works closely with a faculty mentor from within his/her major. If the project is interdisciplinary, then the student works closely with two mentors across the disciplines. Students' senior projects often lead to a powerful transition to graduate school or to a profession. The hard work of our Senior Honors Scholars is showcased in our two day University Scholarship Festival called the SPARC Festival.

Monday-Thursday 9 a.m.–4 p.m.

Internships

One of the best ways to flesh out your résumé is to complete an internship either on campus or off campus. Internships can be during the academic year or summer, for credit or not for credit, paid or volunteer. Very often these internships lead to a job after graduation.To help you find an internship, the Honors Office has compiled a list of internship opportunities that is updated regularly.

Conference and Research Presentation Opportunities

The Conference of Undergraduate Research & Scholarship offers students the opportunity to showcase their work and learn about the work of others, while networking with peers at other institutions.
