Honors and Awards

Departmental Honors

The CDS Honors Program awards excellence by encouraging students to take an in-depth study in a specialty area within the fields of communicative disorders and sciences. Students gain a more sophisticated understanding of at least one aspect of the field and develop their analytical skills or creative talents.

The CDS Honors Program allows qualified seniors the opportunity for an extensive laboratory and scientific writing experience. During this year, seniors engage in a year-long research project in a single lab. The lab is selected by the student to fit his/her interests in the field. A mentor is chosen to work closely with the student during the year to guide the student in writing and orally presenting the required senior thesis. Students who complete the project receive a recognition certificate from the department. Students who pursue this program should enroll in CDS 497 Departmental Honors Thesis. The thesis must be submitted and approved by the thesis advisor and co-advisor.
