Biographical Note

The Honors Program of the College of Agriculture was established as a way to allow students of high academic standing the ability to take courses and complete projects and research that would provide them with experience extending past the usual undergraduate program. Students work closely with a faculty advisor throughout the course of their time in the honors program to allow greater educational opportunities.The program originally started in the 1980s and ran until 1993 when it was briefly discontinued. The program started up once again in 2000 with the first theses of the new program produced in 2003.

Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of theses produced by students of the Honors Program of the College of Agriculture and Home Economics.

Arrangement of the Papers
