May I do a project in an area of study other than my major?

Yes, if faculty members in that area of study agree to work with you on your project. The only requirement is that you have a director in the honors area of study and that you follow the guidelines for honors established for that area of study. You should also consult with your major advisor to discuss the benefits and pitfalls of pursuing honors in an area outside your major. Keep in mind that a project worthy of honors should make an identifiable contribution to its field.
