Honors Program Capstone Project

The Honors student applies the skills of inquiry, discovery and critical thinking to a project of their choosing within their discipline. The Honors Capstone Projects listed here demonstrate a wide variety of interests and an impressive amount of research and knowledge from these undergraduate students. These projects are available for viewing at the Ashland University campus library. Each volume titled Ashland University Honors Papers is cataloged under "A" in the reference section with an annual volume for each academic year and authors are alphabetical within each volume. The Ashland University Honors Program applauds these Honors Program graduates for their ingenuity, creativity and effort!
