Thesis & Funding


The honors thesis in Religion is an intensive, self-directed research project that comprises two or three courses during a student’s Senior year and produces a substantial written work.  An honors thesis should build on the knowledge that students have acquired through their previous work in Religion, and should be a recognizable reflection of the specific concentration that a student has constructed within their Religion major.
