According to the 2010-2011 Washington and Lee University Catalog (undergraduate), all "honors programs require an honors thesis during the senior year, involving 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." This site provides access to honors theses the University Library has included in a digitization project beginning in 2010. In many cases, these records include online access to the complete contents of theses, but, at the authors' wishes, some of these records limit online access to current W&L researchers. For similar reasons, some records allow no online access at all.
