Some of our Dance majors choose to complete an Honors project on a topic of their interest. The Hobart and William Smith Honors Program allows students to complete work at the most sustained and sophisticated level available in the Colleges’ curriculum. Qualified students take two or three self-designed courses that concentrate on the same project and are guided throughout their exploration by a faculty adviser.
In addition to the culminating Honors project, usually a research or critical paper or its counterpart in the creative arts is produced. Each Honors candidate also takes a written examination in their Honors field and an oral examination that covers both the Honors project and the written examination.
