The Honor's Project Application Form with appropriate signatures must be turned into the Dean of Academic Affairs for approval.

Projects should be submitted to the Mack Library by the last day of classes.

  • Projects should be printed on good quality 8 1/2" x 11" paper that is neither stapled nor bound in any way.
  • Each page should have a one and one-half inch left side margin.
  • Each project should contain a separate title page that includes name, date, and title of the submitted work.
  • Each project should be reproduced in digital format, preferably CD or thumb drive. Each accompanying CD or additional media should be clearly labeled with the same information found on the title page.

What are the Honors Projects?

An honors project is one in which a student researches a subject by examination of relevant literature or by experimentation or both; the student reports the results in an accurately documented and well-written paper or appropriate representation of the work. Whenever the study deals with the subject of an established course, the student is expected to go well beyond the usual work of the course in research and in assimilation of the results as revealed in the report.

Juniors and seniors with a cumulative grade point average of 3.40 or above may register for an honors project. One desiring to pursue an honors project must submit a written description of his or her proposed work to the chair of the appropriate department and to the vice president and dean for academic affairs by the first day of the semester in which the study is to be conducted. The application can be found on the Registrar's website. Students wishing to graduate Bridgewater as summa cum laude or magna cum laude must complete an honors project along with other qualifications.

At the conclusion of the honors project, the supervising professor files with the registrar a grade for the student and a description of the work accomplished. It is the student’s responsibility to provide the library a copy of the project in compliance with specifications above. The library arranges for binding and storage.
