HON 399: A Thesis Preparation Course

This guide informs Honors College students about the thesis writing process


Welcome to the HON 399: A Thesis preparation course guide!  This guide is designed as a resource to offer useful advice and support while also preparing you for your thesis journey.

Course Overview

This course is designed as a workshop to help students prepare for their thesis experience in their senior year and develop a full-fledged proposal of their research projects. Targeted primarily for juniors, the goals of the class are to teach students how to find a good topic of inquiry, how to define a research question, how to find an advisor, and what resources exist on campus to help them execute their projects. Overall, the idea is to “demystify” the thesis process, reassure students of its manageable scope, and help them understand the value of undergraduate research. This course is taught both in Fall and Spring semesters. Ideally, sections of HON 399 will be broken down by disciplines: social sciences, sciences, humanities, business, health and human services, and interdisciplinary.
