## Senior Honors Thesis

The senior honors thesis provides an educational enhancement opportunity for interested students. Students work one-on-one with a mathematics professor to research and report on a mathematics topic not normally covered in the traditional undergraduate curriculum. Students considering this option should discuss the possiblity with a mathematics advisor during their junior year. In the first semester of your senior year, enroll in HONR 3000. In this course you work with your advisor to develop and investigate a thesis topic. In your last semester enroll in MATH 4993 where the thesis is completed. Further information about the senior honors thesis can be found at this link.The following is a list of recent mathematics theses.
