As a Commonwealth Honors College student, you’re bound to find the rigors of advanced scholarship to be deeply rewarding.


As you advance through the honors curriculum and immerse yourself in one or more fields of study, you will likely encounter unanswered questions, unresolved problems and unexplored creative concepts. Our signature Capstone Experience  gives you the opportunity to ask questions and seek answers through systematic research. Through self-designed independent research or as part of an intensive faculty-designed course, your Capstone Experience prepares you for future academic and professional pursuits.


By senior year, Commonwealth Honors College students relish this opportunity to conduct formal research and welcome the chance to work closely with faculty. In an oral defense or other public presentation, you have the chance to share your newly created knowledge with others. And your archived original manuscript will further contribute to the campus’s intellectual community.
