Students working in lab

This project is the culmination of W.A. Franke Honors College studies in the form of a documented personalized experience.

The Honors Senior Thesis/Capstone allows you to produce a long-term, in-depth project in an area that you're passionate about. It may be a research project, business plan, performance or exhibition, or a design project. It could even be a team-based project looking for an innovative solution to a problem. Many alumni say it was a favorite part of their Honors experience.
