The Chancellor’s Honors Program graduation requirement includes a 3-credit hour Honors Thesis project which is an independent, faculty-mentored academic undertaking that culminates and concludes the student’s Chancellor’s Honors Program experience. As such, the Honors Thesis project is a defining feature of the program and is supervised with the utmost seriousness.
Most CHP students conduct their Honors Thesis project in their major discipline and under the direction of a UT faculty member in that same discipline. However, there is no formal limitation or constraint on the topic, method, style, or discipline of an Honors Thesis project. Each is uniquely conceived, executed, and presented. The sole and essential disciplinary limitation is the fact of required faculty oversight, which assures academic credibility without unduly restraining creativity, innovation, and experimentation.
