Honors Projects

 

The Honors project is a self-defined capstone experience intended to showcase the breadth and depth of student learning within a fairly narrowly-defined area of study. The Honors project can be a “traditional” thesis, but it also can take on a number of other, different forms that suit the interests, areas of expertise, and dominant learning style of the student. The Honors project is completed in partial fulfillment of the requirements for being graduated with University Honors at Bowling Green State University.
