The Senior Honors Thesis program is open to all students in the Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences. For students who meet the criteria, it provides them with the opportunity to be involved directly with research. Students work closely with a mentor over three semesters who guides them through the process from conceptualizing a research project to writing a thesis. Students are also required to participate in the PHHP undergraduate student research day, where they have the opportunity to do poster presentations. BHS-CMS students who successfully complete a thesis, are in good academic standing, have no Student Conduct Code or any type of academic dishonesty violations and earn a 3.75 GPA or above in all 3000 or above level coursework since beginning the BHS-CMS program (over 60 credits), will graduate magna cum laude (high honors) or summa cum laude (highest honors).
