The Thesis Honors Program allows Tufts seniors to pursue a year-long independent program of study, to delve into a focused area of research within your major, and to produce an outcome that demonstrates exceptional undergraduate achievement. The senior honors thesis is a capstone experience for undergraduates in a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree program. Students may pursue only one Senior Honors Thesis per bachelor degree; that is, students who have two or three majors may not pursue two or three Honors Theses. Only students in five-year combined degree programs, such as BA/BFA, can pursue one senior thesis for the BFA degree in Studio Art and a Honors Thesis for one major in the BA degree, preferably in years four and five of the combined-degree program.

Students who wish to pursue an honors thesis must:

  • Be a senior.
  • Be in good academic standing.
  • Have been on the Dean’s List at least twice before the senior year. There is a waiver process for transfer students and others who have not met this criterion.
  • Meet departmental criteria for the major or program in which you will pursue the honors thesis. Some majors stipulate prerequisite coursework, a GPA threshold, a written proposal submitted during your junior year, or participation in a senior seminar.
  • Have approval of your major department chair or program director (indicated by approval of this form).
