Description/Abstract

The Honors in the Major undergraduate thesis writing program is the oldest research program at UCF. With over 2,000 students having completed this research experience in the past 25 years, it is important to assess why students are interested in taking on a large-scale endeavor of this kind and how they are benefiting from the experience. These areas of inquiry are addressed using exit survey data collected from graduating Honors in the Major students each semester. Suggestions for how other institutions can implement and/or improve their own thesis writing programs will be provided.
