Schreyer Honors College (SHC)at Penn State

Honors Thesis

All Schreyer Scholars are required to complete an undergraduate honors thesis. This work represents the culmination of a student's honors experience. Through the thesis, the student demonstrates a command of relevant scholastic work and a personal contribution to that scholarship.

The thesis project can take many forms — from laboratory experiments all the way to artistic creations. The thesis document captures the relevant background, methods and techniques, as well as describing the details of the completion of the individual project.

Two Penn State faculty members judge the merits of a Scholar's honors thesis: the student's self-selected thesis supervisor and the department-selected honors adviser in the student's area of honors.
