The Honors in the Major program provides students with the opportunity to learn from faculty members who are experts in their field. While many students conduct traditional research, the program also supports the creative endeavors of those students in majors such as Creative Writing, Dance, Film, Music, Studio Art, and Theatre. Upon successful completion and defense of honors thesis, students will graduate "with honors" in their major, a distinction that is announced during the commencement exercises and is cited in students' official transcripts.
This is the permanent archive of theses written for graduation requirements in the Honors in the Major Program at Florida State University.
