The study of Latin America can enhance your major by providing a lens through which to focus independent research in your chosen field.

At Baruch, one such opportunity is the Honors Thesis, a two-semester sequence in your Senior year (6001H / 6002H).

Why write an Honors Thesis?  Here is a list of the advantages, prepared the Baruch Honors Program – https://blogs.baruch.cuny.edu/honors/academics/thesis/

  • Follow a passion and become an “expert” in a specific topic
  • Build your credentials and create a favorable impression on future employers and graduate schools
  • Strengthen writing and research skills and foster relationships with faculty members
  • Expose yourself to the research process and enhance your abilities as a consumer of research
  • Earn departmental honors, an additional distinction on your diploma

And please note:  You do not have to participate in the Honors Program, or Macauley, to write an Honors Thesis!

For more information about requirements, please consult the Honors Thesis Guide
