Description/Abstract

Since 1989, students at the University of Central Florida have had the opportunity to earn Honors through the Honors in the Major program. In an effort to accommodate the range of students’ research interests and to make the Honors thesis more appealing and accessible to qualified students, the Office of Honors Research has in the last year introduced two new options: the Interdisciplinary thesis and the Engineering thesis. The former allows students to conduct research and write theses outside their declared academic majors; the latter option allows students in Engineering to substitute their Senior Design course for an Honors Thesis course, thus reducing the number of credits associated with the program.
