HNRS 489 - Honors Capstone Project

(1-3cr) After completing a revised proposal in the Directed Readings course, a candidate in honors shall work with a faculty mentor to complete the Honors Capstone Project, the final requirement for graduation from the Honors Program. The project topic should be chosen within the candidate's major or minor field of study, usually adapting a student's major capstone project for additional Honors credit. In many cases, the Honors Capstone Project will take the form of a thesis and include a carefully prepared argument in support of the thesis statement. Rather than a thesis, students in certain fields of study (e.g., graphic design) may choose to design a capstone project. Such a project must also include an initial proposal that will support the design of that project. The thesis or project shall culminate in a formal presentation to an audience consisting of faculty, students, friends, and family. This course may be repeated, to a maximum of 3 earned credits. Prerequisites: HNRS 488 .
