Department of Anthropology Honors Thesis Requirements and Guidelines

Honors thesis writing and research provides students with a deeper level of engagement with a topic they are interested in than they may get in regular courses. They will have the opportunity to do primary research, which is preferred, or they may do a review of relevant literature, and they can contribute their own interpretation or analysis. An honors thesis is a stepping stone for professionalization in anthropology; it gives students experience for graduate programs and careers involving research and writing. The honors thesis research may be published and presented at academic conferences as well.
