The Honors Senior Thesis


Most academic departments at Dominican University of California require a Senior Thesis, a one-year culminating experience that offers evidence of accomplishment in a discipline or area of inquiry. It can take many forms: a research document, a case study, a novel, a portfolio of poetry, a performance, an exhibit, a mathematical demonstration or a computer program.

A Senior Thesis becomes an Honors Thesis when it meets an unusually high standard of excellence as determined by the unanimous vote of a Thesis Committee composed of at least three faculty members, one of whom is the honors Director or a member of the Honors Board.
