My Off-Canvas



Students will be required to complete a faculty-led capstone project in order to receive Honors distinction. This can be a research, creative or experiential activity. Students can write a novel, report on lab research, or even create a documentary. The capstone project enables you to take learning outside of the classroom and apply critical thought to the topics you are most passionate about.  Honors offers both course support and mentorship throughout this process. The experience gained through the capstone project can help you get into graduate school or provide you with invaluable experiences that can boost your resume for your intended career. Archived capstones are accessible on eScholarship or in person via Special Collections at Rivera Library. Capstones accessible electronically will be marked as “ONLINE” while those only accessible through Special Collections will be marked as “LIB USE ONLY”. Please be advised that archived capstones will vary and are not necessarily indicative of the average or typical capstone project for any particular discipline.
