HON 499 Senior Honors Project
Senior Honors Students in majors without a capstone project may enroll in HON 499. The Honors Student, together with his or her advisor and the Honors Program Director, can design a capstone experience. Experiences that fulfill this requirement include (but are not limited to) experiences such as independent research, student teaching, nursing clinicals, study abroad, and internships. HON 499 must include a presentation to the Honors Director and fellow Honors Student, and if the course designed is anything but an independent research paper, should include a simple portfolio. The Honors Program Director will review each student’s work and presentation to determine the successful completion of this requirement.
