The Honors Project

The honors project offers seniors the opportunity to engage in original scholarship under the supervision of a faculty member in their major department or program and results in a written thesis and/or oral defense, artistic performance or showing, depending on the student’s field of study.

The catalog record for each honors thesis can be seen here. Print versions of honors projects created between 1924 and 2019 are available in the Bowdoin College Library’s Department of Special Collections & Archives.
