Honors Honors projects are student-initiated and culminate in the production of professional quality research projects. Honors projects offer an opportunity in the junior and senior year for students to work closely with a faculty member on a significant project designed to more deeply explore a particular focus within their program of study. The student should initiate the project by discussing possible topics with their advisor early in their junior year. Those who successfully defend the honors projects will be awarded honors at graduation, and their accomplishment will be recognized on their academic transcript.Students pursuing the double major are eligible to apply for the women’s studies academic honor society Iota Iota Iota (Triota).
