This chapter explores the honors thesis as a capstone option whereby students develop a research idea, conduct a literature review, collect and analyze data, summarize and interpret results, and present the findings in a presentation and written thesis. This process builds upon key curricular components in that it necessarily involves knowledge of research methods and data analysis techniques, theories and findings in relevant substantive content areas, and ethical considerations. Using a case example, the chapter argues that an honors thesis is a reasonable option for meeting capstone goals.
