Hobson Wildenthal Honors College at UT Dallas

CV Honors Graduation Requirements

Successful completion of the CV Honors Program is noted on the graduate’s diploma and transcript. To earn CV Honors, students are required to graduate with a 3.5 GPA, earn 24 credit hours in honors related work by graduation, and successfully complete and present an approved honors capstone project. The following guidelines and templates are designed to assist students with this final requirement.

Getting Started

The Collegium V Honors capstone project requirement is designed to be flexible in order to maximize its relevance to the individual student. Engineering and Computer Science students can satisfy this requirement with their Senior Design Project. Arts and Technology students can satisfy this requirement with the capstone required for their major. Students completing a senior thesis to graduate with major honors in their academic discipline can use that thesis to satisfy the Collegium V honors capstone project. You can also select a topic of interest, within or outside your major, ask a UT Dallas faculty to oversee it, and have it approved by an honors faculty before September 30 of senior year. Students are encouraged to explore academic topics of personal interest, even if unrelated to a student’s major or professional career.

Poster and Presentation Guidance

All students are required to present a poster summarizing their capstone project. The resources below will help students with drafting, editing, and presenting components of their project.
