Honors Thesis

To graduate as Kugelman Honors Scholars, Honors students are required to complete and present an Honors thesis.

Honors Thesis Methods Course

The course IDH 3055: Honors Thesis Methods prepares student to embark on the thesis process, and write a successful proposal and thesis. Dr. Gregory Tomso teaches this 1 s.h. course each spring semester, which students typically take in their third year.

Honors Thesis Submittals

Honors students will first submit a thesis proposal, which their Thesis Faculty Advisor, then the Honors Director will approve. Once a student has received notification that their proposal has been approved, it is up to that student to submit their final thesis documents according to the deadlines specified for the semester they wish to complete their thesis.

After completing their thesis, students will submit a PDF version of their final thesis document and any attachments via the Honors Thesis Submittal Form for the faculty advisor's and program director's final review.

Office of Undergraduate Research

UWF's Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) supports undergraduate scholarly work through a combination of funding and programming. For many Honors students, undergraduate research provides an excellent foundation for their thesis, and sometimes even becomes their thesis project.
