How do I register for my thesis?

Students ready to register for their thesis hours will need to register for the course HONOR 4999: Honor Thesis/Project. You will need to contact your honors advisor for a permission code in order to add this class. 


Who can be my faculty advisor?

International Studies majors wishing to complete an IS honors thesis must have as a thesis advisor a member of the University’s research-active faculty (either tenure or career line) with a demonstrated record of scholarly publication and with expertise in the chosen area of inquiry. Co-advisors are acceptable, where appropriate, to meet these criteria.

How do I find a faculty advisor?

Students who are not yet sure which faculty member(s) they would like to work with can:

  1. Check out the faculty guide. It lists professors who teach approved electives for International Studies.
  2. Then meet with Honors Faculty Advisor and International Studies Director, Hugh Cagle, to discuss your ideas and next steps.
