Senior Project: This may carry 3-9 semester hours of credit. The content of the project is determined by the honors student in consultation with a faculty member serving as project advisor, and is approved by the department head and the Director of the Honors College. This project can be started no earlier than the first semester of the junior year and must be completed before graduation. The Honors College may provide students the opportunity to publish or otherwise present their projects. The project advisor will normally be from the student’s major, and will serve to advise the student in all aspects of the project. The project is, however, to be based on the student’s own ideas and work.
Once the project topic is agreed upon, the student must write a typed proposal to be approved by the project advisor and the department head who will certify to the Director that the project has been so approved. The student may apply for a grant of up to $200 from the Honors Committee. This grant will be administered by the Director and used to support the student’s project. Any equipment purchased with this money will remain with the University.
The completed project and a separate abstract will be approved by the project advisor and the department head. The advisor will send the approved abstract, the project and a completed project approval form to the Director.
