One of the capstone options to graduate with Global Honors is the completion of an honors thesis with a GPA of 3.5 or above. Drawing upon key concepts outlined in the core curriculum, students undertake sustained research into globally themed topics relevant to their academic interests and individual expertise. These theses are presented at the annual Global Honors Colloquium.

The theses that appear in this collection are a sample of the type of globally relevant scholarly inquiries undertaken by Global Honors students. To merit inclusion in the Global Honors Digital Commons Collection, theses must receive a GPA of 3.7 or above. Exceptions may be made based on originality of topic, at the discretion of the Program Director. Inquiries concerning these submissions or the Global Honors Program may be directed to ghonors@uw.edu.
