The Honors Research Project is an integral part of the Williams Honors College experience, and completion of an acceptable Honors Research Project is a requirement to graduate as a Williams Honors Scholar. Interdisciplinary, creative projects are encouraged, and could incorporate original research investigating a significant question, a unique artistic or creative work, or the design of an original concept to meet a societal need. In all cases the project must meet high standards of scholarship. The student must also meet any department or college requirements for this project, such as prerequisite coursework or experience, qualifying examination, or oral presentation. More information about the Honors Research Project is available online.
