The Honors Thesis

Research is an integral part of the UT CS honors undergraduate experience. To graduate with an honors degree you must define and conduct a research project and then write up your work in the form of an honors thesis.

Excellent honors theses can take several different forms. Many describe system-building projects. Some describe theoretical results. Others describe the results of empirical studies. Some (but certainly not all) honors theses lead to published papers. On this page, we offer suggestions that you should consider before you begin writing your thesis.
