PS 499 - Honors Thesis Research

(3.00 cr.)

Students are invited into this optional program by the department during the spring of the junior year and are ordinarily required to complete one course at the 400-level before undertaking honors work. Eligible students who accept the invitation must prepare a formal proposal of their honors project and secure an advisor for the project prior to the start of the honors semester, which may be set for either semester of the senior year. The thesis is read by the advisor and two other faculty members, who also conduct an hour-long oral examination of the student. Based on the oral exam, the thesis, and consultations with the other two readers, the advisor then determines if the student is to receive honors. Written or electronic permission of the instructor and the department chair.
