Thesis Project


The honors thesis is a requirement of the honors degree. The

thesis is a major written work of either research or a creative

effort. The work is to be carried out and completed under the

supervision of a full-time LSSU faculty member who is

knowledgeable in the area.


Research is intended to be widely interpreted and may include,

but is not limited to, experiments, analysis of existing data, and

a summary and integration of already completed but dispersed



The creative thesis should include a written analysis of the

creative work, describing the motivation for it, its relation to

other work in the area, and its relation to the current direction

of work in the area.


All academic disciplines lend themselves to thesis work. Your thesis will be tied to an existing body of knowledge and can ...

  • involve your original creative work in the visual or performing arts
  • evidence your research in the world of business or the physical, biological, or social sciences
  • highlight your historical research in an archive or library that is tied to your own hypothesis

Your may explore a problem within a single discipline or pose an interdisciplinary question.  Or you can incorporate your study abroad experience into your thesis.

However, in all cases, your thesis must be presented as a significant piece of writing and a public oral presentation that places your work within an academic framework. The written work must provide a synthesis of the relevant scholarly literature and analyze your work within that context.
