2015 Honors Theses and More


The Washington and Lee University Digital Archive recently added W&L’s 2015 graduating seniors’ honors theses to its collections.

Honors work is described in the University Catalog as “featuring a special profundity and intensity, and characterized by a close rapport between student and mentor, the honors programs are designed as an enrichment opportunity for students who demonstrate superior aptitude and self-discipline in the pursuit of their major study.”   The final thesis reflects “six credits (no more, no less) of independent work, such as a significant report based upon field or laboratory research, a creative accomplishment in the arts, or a comparable scholarly undertaking, demonstrating more than simply a mastery of subject matter.”

Here is a direct link to the 29 honors theses in the 2015 collection:  https://repository.wlu.edu/handle/11021/26989/browse?value=2015&type=alldates

Some of these theses are freely available online to all users, some are accessible online only to W&L researchers, while still others may be available only in printed form in Leyburn Library’s Special Collections.

Other new additions to the Digital Archive include 2015 Latin American and Caribbean Studies capstone posters and 2005-2015 Phi Beta Kappa convocation programs .


The entire W&L Digital Archive is accessible through the University Library Web site.
