Departmental Senior Honors Program

Most departments in the college sponsor honors programs that provide opportunities for research and independent study in the major field. Students are normally selected for the departmental honors program at the end of their junior year. They devote much of their senior year to the design and completion of an original research project or senior thesis. Members of departmental honors programs who complete their project or thesis with distinction are eligible for nomination by their departments for the award of Distinction in the Major. Departmental honors program participants are granted special UCSB Davidson Library privileges normally available only to graduate students. In addition, they are eligible to apply for grants for undergraduate research and creative projects.
