Through the Honors Program's wide range of curriculum, student will experience challenging courses in almost every department, with majors in every field in LSA. During their first two years, students will participate in an Honors Core course from the areas of Natural Science (NS), Social Science (SS), and the Humanities (H). In addition, the Course Guide reflects Honors courses in a wide variety of departments and Honors Student Study Groups. We offer seminars, courses, and direct involvement with faculty from the start of students' lives at Michigan. (See more regarding Honors Curriculum here.)
In their final two years at U-M, students who graduate with Honors all participate in a capstone project by writing a thesis in their area of major. Students meet regularly with a thesis advisor from the major department, as well as receiving guidance in their regular Honors advising appointments. Current students and alumnus, alike, share that this project is a defining moment, preparing them for graduate schools and careers.
All theses are published by our department in U-M's Deep Blue archives, which are shared around the world with others involved in scholarly pursuit.
Intellectual Property Information
When you deposit your senior thesis in the University’s Deep Blue archive, it will become a permanent part of the University’s intellectual legacy. Deep Blue makes these works accessible to the scholarly community for the long term, providing a single, permanent URL for reference. Unlike most scholarly publishing, placing your thesis in Deep Blue involves no transfer of intellectual property rights. You can, and should read the Deep Blue intellectual property policy:
and the accompanying author’s deposit agreement
This short author’s agreement asks you to warrant that your work is original and does not, to the best of your knowledge, infringe or violate the rights of others. For most theses, this should be simple and clear. If your thesis includes images or other material which might be subject to copyright protection, you should begin by discussing the issue with your thesis advisor. If questions emerge, we encourage you to contact the University Copyright Office (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please feel free to consult with the Honors program as well.
