Your guidance and the practices in your discipline are most important for framing the individualized major thesis project and setting the standards for its evaluation. The guidelines below outline some of the particular considerations relevant to individualized major students.

Aspects of these guidelines may also be relevant to students undertaking a less traditional final project.
We ask Honors students to identify a second reader for their thesis. The second reader should be a faculty member from a discipline relevant to the student’s thesis. The second reader may be in the same discipline as the supervisor or a different one. A second reader may provide the student with a different perspective and additional insights into how best to achieve the intended learning outcomes of the thesis. The thesis supervisor, in consultation with the student, determines when to bring the second reader on board. It is the supervisor’s prerogative to define how the grade for the thesis will be determined.
