Honors Thesis Mentoring – Spanish Monolingual Community

Honors Thesis Mentoring – Spanish Monolingual Community


If you’re an active member of the Honors College and have completed your first year at the U, an Honors Thesis Mentoring Community (TMC) is an excellent themed community option for you. Additionally, students who speak or are learning to speak Spanish may be interested in the Spanish Monolingual Community in the Donna Garff Marriott Honors Residential Scholars Community.  Students who live in a TMC have increased access to faculty, staff, and peer support as they pursue one of the most crucial points of their honors degree, the thesis. This support will help connect you to research opportunities and provide an ideal environment highly conducive to you academic pursuits. The Spanish monolingual component of the community will consist of students speaking exclusively in Spanish while on the floor (second year or above proficiency is recommended). Programming will focus on Latin American discourse and democracy, with an optional associated honors course during spring semester.
