The Honors Capstone and Senior Thesis requirements encourage students either to develop their own scholarly interests or to become more involved with the research pursuits of University faculty. The completion of this independent work, particularly with the thesis, will set you apart from other university students. The most common experience for these two requirements is to do independent research with a faculty mentor in the junior year, and then write the results of that research as your thesis in the senior year.

You must register your thesis with the Honors College, via the on-line Honors College Database Archive for Senior Honors Projects . You must present two unbound copies of your thesis to the department/ Director of Undergraduate Studies , along with a letter from your advisor stating the results of the defense, by two weeks before the beginning of the examination period for the semester in which your defense is held (this schedule can be adapted to suit students who take the 691H-692H sequence on a Spring-Fall schedule). One copy will be retained by the department. One copy will be bound by and archived in the North Carolina Collection of Wilson Library. Please adhere to the thesis formatting instructions of the UNC Honors Program .
