About your Thesis

Our undergraduates share a rigorous, engaging, and rewarding interdisciplinary curriculum under the guidance of dedicated faculty mentors.

The atmosphere here is amazing and the people are as intellectual as you—so it’s a very unique environment to learn in. Overall, I am so glad to be a part of the Honors College and I can’t wait to take more classes with the brilliant staff and the friendly peers in this community.
