21:525:450Honors College Internships (BA)

Open to Honors College students only by permission of the director.
21&62:525:497,498Senior Honors Project (3,3) Honors College seniors culminate their undergraduate experience with a yearlong effort that may take one of two forms. (1) They may take the capstone course, a theme-based course in which students may work collaboratively on a common project or complete an individual research project on a subject related to the course theme. (2) Students also may elect to complete an individual thesis, not part of an organized course, supervised by a faculty member. The project may be focused on a student's major area of study or may reflect a special interest or talent of the student outside of his or her major. Credit is given only upon completion of the project. Open to Honors College seniors only by permission of the director. Both terms must be completed to receive credit. This is the capstone of the Honors College requirements.
