Writing a Senior Honors Thesis is an optional, but very valuable, opportunity to explore research independently and gain experience in Linguistics beyond coursework.
A select number of Linguistics majors are invited to write Honors Theses in their senior year. This selection is based on cumulative GPA in the spring semester of junior year.
Students interested in writing a thesis will submit a preliminary proposal. If approved, these students will participate in an Honors Thesis Seminar, write an Honors Thesis, and present their theses in a conference format.
