The goal of the CWU Science Honors Research Program is to prepare scholar/researchers to contribute to their profession through graduate study or professional employment.
This goal is addressed through an experience-based inquiry-driven learning process which includes:
- Mentored relationship with a faculty member,
- Development of a highly competitive research proposal,
- Learning the basis of research methods and issues through two honors seminars,
- Engaging in two years of mentored research,
- Preparation of a written honors thesis, and
- Oral presentation of the honors thesis before a professional audience.
Most of the SHRP students present the results of their research at scientific conferences, and many of the theses are published in peer-reviewed journals. Click Here for a listing of our students' presentations and publications
The significance of this program is the development of scholars who serve the needs of society through advances made in their professions.
