The senior honors research (HN 499) project is your opportunity to study and research a topic that is of interest to you under the direction of a faculty mentor or mentors. You may choose to research a topic in your major field of study, or you may choose to broaden your perspective and research a topic that is outside your major. The essential consideration is that it be a topic in which you are interested and about which you want to learn more. The only requirement for the honors project is that the final product that you submit must be at the senior level in terms of quality. Considerations such as format, length, etc. are determined by the appropriate discipline(s) and your faculty mentor(s). The project will be evaluated as Satisfactory / Unsatisfactory by your faculty mentor(s), where Satisfactory is interpreted as A or B work in a 400-level course. We suggest identifying a faculty mentor or mentors with whom you would like to work and contacting them to exchange ideas about possible projects approximately two semesters before your anticipated graduation.
