When your paper/project is completed, the following schedule is used:
- Your mentor will grade your paper and return it to you by the ninth week of the second semester.
- You can make corrections/revisions and present your paper/project to the Honors Committee by the tenth week of the second semester.
- You will present an oral presentation and discuss your paper/project before the Honors Committee and interested students and faculty in the eleventh week of the second semester. The Honors Committee will notify you and your mentor as to their approval of your paper/project by the twelfth week of the second semester.
If you are interested in learning more about the departmental honors process, the composition of the Honors Committee, the appeal process or other details, or if you are interested in pursuing an honors project, see the chair of the Sociology Department or the director of the Justice Studies Program as soon as possible and no later than three semesters before you graduate from Rhode Island College. If you require funding to complete your independent honors research, you may be eligible for a Destefano Undergraduate Research/Creativity Award.
