Thesis/Creative Projects: 

Thesis/creative projects within NPB are dominantly lab-based research studies, typically with experimental components and with the aim of preparing a publication-quality document that summarizes your work, findings, and their implications. Students should assemble a three-person committee, led by the student's PI. It is traditional for a student to tackle a project that buds off of ongoing work in the PI's lab.

Academic Preparation: 

The student should begin searching before their senior year for a PI and lab in which to work, in order to gain the necessary experience and skills to develop his/her own independent Barrett honors thesis research project. He/she may look to become part of our undergraduate research program (SOLUR), which will further assist in the student's professional research development and career.
