The Honors Research Project is an integral part of the UA Honors experience, and every Honors College student must complete an acceptable Honors Research Project. See also the web page answering Frequently Asked Questions about the Honors Research Project.

Research Thesis - original scholarship investigating a significant question
Research Report - a formal written presentation of technical, laboratory, or investigative research
Artistic or Creative Performance or Production - in the fine arts, applied arts, or performing arts; a written report, introduction, or commentary is required.

The project must meet high standards of scholarship. The student must also meet any additional department of college requirements for this project, such as prerequisite coursework or experience, qualifying examination, or oral presentation. Study abroad or field experience may be accepted, with the approval of the student's Honors Faculty Advisor, as part of the project.
