Honors in the Major is UCF's most advanced undergraduate research program. It is designed to assist juniors and seniors to develop their own independent research project under the direction of a thesis advisor and faculty thesis committee. Students do not need to be Honors students to take advantage of the HIM program; it is available to all qualified UCF students. After a two semester sequence (i.e. readings and thesis hours), this project culminates in a successful oral defense and binding of the HIM thesis which is then catalogued and archived in UCF's library and the Burnett Honors College Reading Room.
The Burnett Honors College partners with eight other colleges and two area campuses (Cocoa and Daytona) in sponsoring HIM Scholarships. These $1,000 scholarships are awarded every fall and spring on a competitive basis within each college/campus and are available to all students who are enrolled in HIM credit hours (either readings or thesis hours).
