Thesis and Creative Project

Home / Academics / Thesis & Creative Project

The Barrett honors thesis/creative project is the culmination of the entire honors experience and undergraduate education.  It is an opportunity to work closely with faculty and advance knowledge in the discipline in a meaningful way.  A thesis/creative project demonstrates experience with design, execution, analysis, and presentation in the chosen field of study.  

Barrett is here to support students throughout this process. The more students communicate with faculty and staff to better understand the process, the more it enhances your education. Please explore the resources available to ensure success.
