Honors Thesis

 

It is expected that the honors thesis in Business 390 be a scholarly research project that is significant in the field of choice and displays evidence of independent and original scholarship. The honors thesis may be in conjunction with a research assistantship with a chosen professor. Students are expected to propose a viable research plan to the professor and agree to engage in an interactive staged process, which reflects the demands and time commitment appropriate for the course.
