Honors Capstone

Start Your Journey

Learn about the Honors Capstone process here.

The Honors College experience culminates with a capstone project—a significant independent work that allows you to explore your own interests while demonstrating the full scope of your skills and abilities to employers and graduate schools.

There are three general types of capstone projects: academic research, creative projects, or some other "signature" work that addresses a real-world issue. Learn more about what's required by exploring the capstone process and requirements below.

To complete the capstone requirement, students must enroll in HON 4390B (or HON 4090) and earn a grade of "B" or higher.

Whichever path you choose, your project should be something that you are both passionate about and that will serve your long-term academic and professional goals.  The best way to decide what kind of capstone is right for you is to speak with your departmental and Honors College advisors and with professors or professionals in your field.  We hold several information sessions each semester, and you can also make an appointment to speak with an Honors College faculty member.
