The Honors Program requires students to complete six hours of an Honors project to graduate from the Honors Program.  Students can select options that are best suited for their degree, and often times are already required for many programs across campus.  Some students have opted to do research while others intern at a place related to their future careers.  Below are some of our recent graduates’ senior projects.
