Enrollment is limited to: CAPS majors. Honors applicants must consult with the CAPS Director to select an honors thesis advisor.
Honors students conduct research to prepare a thesis on a topic of their own choosing under the direction of a faculty member. The application must be successfully submitted and an Honors Committee formed by the end of applicant’s junior year in order for the student to be an honors candidate. Permission to enroll in CAPS 4020 is contingent upon the advisor’s judgement of the viability of the student’s honors thesis by the end of the semester.
