An honors thesis is required of all students graduating with any level of Latin honors. It is an excellent opportunity for undergraduates to define and investigate a topic, and to complete a piece of serious academic writing.
Introductory thesis workshops are held every semester to give students a brief overview of the thesis-writing process. Watch the Weekly News for announcements regarding these sessions.
Public presentations are only required for students completing a summa cum laude thesis, but we encourage those completing theses at the cum laude and magna cum laude levels to participate as well. For those completing a thesis during the spring 2014 semester, we have secured several time slots for public presentations in Northrop, beginning Monday April 7 and ending Wednesday May 14. Before reserving your space, please ensure that your faculty readers are available to attend. Reservations can be made using appointment slots on the UHP Thesis Presentations Calendar. (UMN Google authentication required.) Thesis presentations should begin promptly at the top of your time slot and should last no more than 30 minutes; we've created 45-minute time slots to preserve a 15-minute cushion between presentations. Please do not reserve more than one time slot.
