Can I do an Honors thesis if I plan to study abroad during the Fall or Spring of my Junior year?

Yes, you may, although it will take some extra work on your part. If you are interested in the Honors Program, and you do plan on studying abroad, you should contact potential research mentors during the Spring semester of your Sophomore year to start getting research experience and building a relationship with a mentor. You will be expected to work on developing a research proposal with your mentor during your Junior year. You may submit your application to the Honors program from abroad, electronically.
