Undergraduate Research and Honors

We encourage all undergraduate students to pursue senior research projects regardless of whether they plan to appy for honors. There are ample opportunities in the department to be involved with exciting, cutting-edge research, and to work with modern instrumentation.

University requirements for graduation with honors specify that a student must attain a 3.5 overall junior/senior level grade point average. For high honors students may complete two semesters of GLY4905 (Individual work) for 3 credits each semester with a grade of B or higher. The student must prepare an abstract and thesis to be approved by the student’s research advisor who recommends the student to the department for high honors. The thesis must contain new scientific results and discussion. For highest honors the student must have a GPA of 3.7 or higher in all upper level courses and meet all the requirements listed for high honors by the University.

The University Undergraduate Scholars program provides financial support for selected student research projects. Applications must be made in the spring of a student’s junior year.
