About the Honors Program

The Honors Program consists of a two-term thesis project, Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies 98 and 99. Students will design their projects in consultation with the faculty adviser who has agreed to direct the thesis. A student must secure an adviser’s preliminary endorsement of their project by May 1st of the junior year, and submit a proposal to the WGSS Faculty Steering Committee for preliminary approval by May 15th of the junior year. Honors thesis candidates must submit a final thesis proposal for the approval of the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Faculty Steering Committee by the second week of the fall term of the senior year. Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies 98 and 99 carry two credits toward degree requirements but count as only one credit toward major requirements.
