The honors thesis presents both a great challenge and a great opportunity. The preparation for such a thesis, including both research and writing, can help focus your interests, provide perspective on your major, integrate your study, develop scholarly skills, and encourage creativity and independent effort.
The choice of topic, thesis supervisor, and an optional second reader is up to you. Your subject should be one you are passionate about, but one that can be treated within the time allowed. Admissions committees in many of the best graduate and professional schools often consider students especially well qualified who have already participated successfully in the original research represented by an honors thesis.
