Brandeis University Senior Honors Theses


The senior honors thesis is the capstone experience of the honors program within an academic department or program. It is a two-semester sequence during which students work, under the supervision of an advisor, on a substantial piece of original research and writing. Students must then defend their theses to an advisory committee. The thesis requires a major commitment of time and energy, and ordinarily attracts only a small percentage of graduating seniors. Only those who have successfully written and defended a thesis can graduate with Honors, High Honors or Highest Honors. Senior honors theses on paper (from 1950 to 2013) can be found in Brandeis Library OneSearch and may be consulted in the University Archives.


This collection includes voluntary submissions for the class of 2013.
