One of the many programs that sets Emory apart is our Honors Program, which makes it possible for outstanding students in most disciplines to work closely with a faculty member to complete a project in a chosen area of study. The intensive effort goes beyond the regular work being done in the classroom and results in a finished product-be it a paper, a video, or some other manifestation. Honors students must also pass a written and/or oral exam in the chosen subject.
Some examples of recent Honors theses include:
ANTHROPOLOGY: "Hot Cheetos v. Honeydew Melon: Measuring Cultural Consensus on Nutrition within and between Parent and Child Groups in a Latino Population in the Southeast: the Effects of Acculturation, Influence on Practice and Implications"
BIOLOGY: "The Efficacy and Endocytosis of u-PAR-targeted Quantum Dots"
PSYCHOLOGY: "Charm or Harm: The Effect on an American Southern Accent on Attitude and Comprehension"
POLITICAL SCIENCE: "My Generation: A Study of Youth Vote Turnout Trends in U.S. Presidential Elections"
