Honors Papers



Standards for Honors Study at Connecticut College are set by the college and by academic departments. Students who are writing Honors papers should confer with their advisers about manuscript preparation and matters of style.

Guidelines for Submitting an Honors Thesis

At the April 2011 faculty meeting, the faculty approved a new policy requiring that all Honors Theses be submitted electronically for inclusion in the Digital Commons institutional repository. More information can be found on the Honors Study Resources Moodle site that is available to all registered Honors students or by reviewing the following:

Finding an Honors paper in the online catalog

Honors papers submitted to the library since 1990 have been cataloged in Caravan, the CTW online catalog, and may be found by using the standard search strategies: name of author, title of work, or keyword. In addition, a listing by department is retrievable by typing the following "keyword" search in the catalog:

Connecticut and College and Honors and [name of department]

Ask at the Reference Desk if you want to consult the card file of Honors papers written before 1990, which are listed by department under the heading "Connecticut College authors - Honors papers."

The library hopes to have all of the Honors papers cataloged online eventually. The current collection of Honors papers in the Archives is incomplete because over the years not all papers have been deposited.
