Honors College

East Tennessee State University

The Honors Thesis is an in-depth capstone experience, required of all honors scholars, to provide them with opportunities to develop a deeper understanding of their major disciplines, closer intellectual interaction with faculty members and well-rounded preparation for their career goals. Honors scholars use primary literature, data gathering, artistic or technological approaches in their disciplines to produce a year-long, sustained research or creative experience. The quality of the thesis is essentially the result of scholarly diligence, faculty mentor oversight and thesis readers suggestions.

The Directors of the different Honors Programs at ETSU can answer many questions about the Honors thesis, as can the Coordinators of the different Honors-in-Discipline programs.
