Evaluation of the Essay or Thesis
Evaluations take place at several points in the honors thesis process:
WMGS 99a and/or b: The adviser of the student’s project section will grade the student.
Honors thesis/oral defense: The defense committee, made up of the adviser, and a second reader determines a recommendation for honors at the time of the defense. The committee will base this recommendation upon both the written project and the oral defense.
Program Honors: Determination of program honors is a decision of the WGS core faculty and is dependent not only on the level of honors earned for the thesis but also on the student’s academic record in the Women’s and Gender Studies Program. The level of program honors awarded will be highest honors, high honors, honors, or no honors.
