Honors Faculty Advisors

The Honors College and departments across campus have provided an Honors Faculty Advisor for students in every college. Faculty advisors can help you explore ideas for your thesis, connect with other faculty in the department to supervise your thesis work and, in some cases, develop a plan to complete Honors track requirements.

Departmental Honors tracks have specific course requirements that must be completed to earn an Honors degree. Students need to meet with the Honors Faculty Advisor in their department to be admitted to the Honors track and fulfill track requirements.

Faculty with questions should contact the Honors Advising team at:
