USFSP Honors Program Theses (Undergraduate)

 

This collection contains scanned and born digital theses created by USFSP undergraduate students in the Honors Program. USF St. Petersburg's Honors Program took shape in the early 1990s. The first theses published on this campus were submitted to the Poynter Library in 1994. Between 1994 and 2011, the library received these publications from the Honors Program and added print copies to the circulating collection and Special Collections. As theses are born digital, the USFSP Digital Archive will serve as the repository for all Honors Program theses from 1994 forward.
