USF St. Petersburg campus Honors Program Theses (Undergraduate)


This collection contains scanned and born digital theses created by undergraduate Honors students at the USF St. Petersburg campus. Here, the Honors Program took shape in the early 1990s, with a thesis project serving as the culminating experience in a student’s undergraduate academic journey. Between 1994 and 2011, thesis projects were printed and bound, and the Nelson Poynter Memorial Library added physical copies to the circulating collection and Special Collections. As technology improved, the library scanned these volumes and added them - as well as incoming, born-digital theses - to the NPML Digital Archive. Now a part of the OneUSF Judy Genshaft Honors College, St. Pete students may still choose to complete a thesis to fulfill the undergraduate research requirement in their curriculum.
