The honors curriculum culminates with a junior/senior honors project in a student’s major. The requirements for a junior/senior project are defined by each college. In some colleges, the project consists of additional honors course work; in others, it is based on independent research or creative activities. A junior/senior project can take nearly any form: a lengthy paper, multimedia presentation, performance, Web site, or another format appropriate to the student’s field of study.
