Honors Concentration

All of the basic requirements plus the following:

Honors thesis project. Honors candidates must enroll in the two-term Senior Thesis Tutorial (TDM 99a and 99b) during their senior year. Thesis projects may be either performance-based or critical. Critical honors theses are yearlong research and writing projects supervised by a faculty member, similar to those in English and other humanities departments. Performance-based honors projects combine substantial research with a performance component and are supervised by a faculty member. While performance-based senior projects may be solo shows, they may also involve the participation of other students. Thesis projects, whether critical or performance-based, are proposed in the spring of the junior year and must be approved by a TDM faculty committee. While the thesis project itself is graded, the tutorial is graded SAT/UNSAT.
