Honors Program

The Honors Program provides Women’s Studies and Gender and Health majors the opportunity to complete a comprehensive, original research project as a culmination of their undergraduate studies. Composed under the guidance of a Women’s Studies faculty member, the thesis is researched and written during students’ junior and senior years. Theses can take a number of forms, including activism work, research projects, or creative/performance pieces, but all projects include a significant piece of scholarly writing.

Students considering honors are encouraged to begin discussing their interests with a Women’s Studies advisor during their sophomore year. An Honors Information Session is held in October. The honors application is due in the Fall of students’ junior year, and the program begins in the subsequent semester.
