Doing research can open up a lot of doors. It allows students to gain valuable skills, think critically and creatively, confirm career plans, work with setbacks and ambiguity, understand where knowledge comes from, and establish personal and professional goals.
Every honors student has the opportunity to complete undergraduate research or creative work during their time at UNI. Students receive guidance from a faculty member in their major or area of interest to develop and complete a project during their last two semesters on campus. The Honors Thesis is the final step toward earning either University Honors or University Honors with Distinction and serves as the culmination of the honors experience.
Full text copies of each Honors Thesis are stored in Rod Library's UNI ScholarWorks digital repository. Each student author receives an entry with unique URL to share with prospective employers or graduate schools. There is an international audience of readers accessing honors theses through UNI ScholarWorks!
