Undergraduates in the School of Communication and Information have the opportunity to apply to a senior honors program within their major if they meet eligibility requirements. Students in an honors program undertake an independent research project and complete a thesis under the supervision of a faculty adviser. Students do not need to be part of their four-year school honors program (e.g., School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program, School of Environmental and Biological Sciences Honors Program) in order to apply.
Students interested in entering the honors program should contact the undergraduate program director of their major or the school's Office of Student Services to discuss the program, eligibility requirements, and current application procedures.
