- The thesis must be approved by both the student’s advisor and mentor (if different from the advisor) and submitted electronically to CALS Academic Affairs before the student can be awarded the Honors designation. The following documents must accompany the thesis:
- Cover Sheet — Students electing to make their theses public should use the Submitting Your Honors Thesis Cover Sheet – with permission to post on Minds@UW; those choosing not to make their theses public should use the Submitting Your Honors Thesis Cover Sheet – without permission to post on Minds@UW. If a student opts to make his or her thesis available to the public, Steenbock Library will upload the thesis to the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Honors and Undergraduate Research Program section of Minds@UW. This is an excellent way for students to showcase their work to employers, graduate schools, family, and friends, and to provide examples of Honors theses to future Honors students.
- Abstract Page — The Abstract Page requires an abstract of not more than 150 words and must be signed by both the student and his/her research mentor.
- Presentation Form — The presentation form requires student and mentor signatures with attached documentation of the presentation.
Upon successful completion of program requirements, students are awarded the Bachelor of Science degree with Honors.
