Repeat after me: you have to be interested in your thesis. Taking on a thesis when you’re not passionate or curious about the subject matter will turn the process into an unbearable chore.

Chances are, your shoulders will already be piled high with obligations you’re not excited about – last-minute classes you need to take in order to graduate, the dreaded job search, grad school applications… The last thing you need is another project (especially one so large) that makes you groan.

Remember the good old days of college, when the most important decisions you had to make were things like what classes to take, who to sit by on the first day and whether or not to blow off your psych lecture… Alright, so maybe the early years had a bit more weight than that, but when you have to decide whether or not to write an honors thesis, those decisions seem like child’s play.

Now, you face a new, more daunting question: Do you want to dedicate much of your final year in college to grueling hours of research and writing a lengthy project of your own devising?

Updated January 2014 The 3.0 credit course is an in-depth critical literature review and/or research proposal that demonstrates the student’s knowledge and understanding of a topic.

The thesis reviews the literature in a particular field or area of interest, identifies gaps or inconsistencies, and develops a specific hypothesis, argument or model.

Typically students spend 10-12 hours/week (although this is likely to depend on the nature and stage of the work).

The 8.0 credit course is completed over two consecutive terms (i.e., Fall-Winter, Winter- Summer, or Summer-Fall) under the supervision of a faculty member in Biology. Scheduling: BIOL 4000 3.0 is offered in Su, F and W terms and BIOL 4000 8.0 is offered in F/W terms, W/S terms and S/F terms.

Instead, look at your honors thesis as a way to pursue something you’re curious about.

As a project of your own devising, you’ll have the power to make it more exciting and catered to your interests than many of your previous projects.
