The Honors in the Major (HIM) Program is designed to encourage the best juniors and seniors to undertake original and independent work in their major field. Established in 1989, Honors in the Major is the oldest and most prestigious undergraduate research program at UCF. It is the only undergraduate research program at UCF in which students are required to undertake original and innovative research as principal investigators. In this program, students research, write, defend and publish an original Honors thesis that serves as the capstone product of their undergraduate career. This thesis is published through the university library and is available to researchers worldwide through electronic databases.

This collection contains records for Honors in the Major theses completed at UCF. Links to electronic versions are included when available. If your Honors thesis is only in print, you can help us make it available online for use by researchers around the world by following the instructions on the distribution consent form here.

For additional information about the Honors in the Major Program, please contact the Office of Research and Civic Engagement at HonorsResearch@ucf.edu or (407) 823-6402.
