Year four: career

From the moment students set foot on campus, they’re working toward their careers. In the fourth year, though, this becomes the main emphasis.

Through a senior thesis (researched and written in collaboration with a faculty member) and active preparation for graduate school or employment, students are headed toward future success.

Many Honors students get to this point having spent a considerable amount of time and effort in their chosen fields, either during service-learning or through research projects. They will have formed close bonds with senior faculty members who will offer advice and provide valuable recommendations.

In addition, through seminars and mentorship events, the Honors College provides opportunities for students to meet and talk with alumni who have gone on to shine in academia and the world beyond.
