The Communication Honors Program provides qualified majors with an opportunity to conduct independent research and to write an honors thesis reporting their results. The Program provides for close contact between the student and a thesis advisor so that the student can receive intensive guidance and assistance throughout their research and writing.
For students who have an established record of academic achievement, participation in the Communication Honors Program offers several distinct advantages:
- the additional academic challenge of small class size,
- the intellectual independence that comes with defining your own research interests, and
- the opportunity to work closely with a faculty member.
