Honors Papers and M.A. Theses

The collection of Honors papers and M.A. theses in the College Archives is an intellectual record of the scholarly efforts of Connecticut College undergraduate and graduate students. The earliest undergraduate Honors papers cataloged in the Archives date to the 1920s. The earliest M.A. theses are from the 1960s.

An archival copy of each Honors paper and M.A. thesis written at the College is deposited in the library by the Registrar. The library catalogs and shelves them in the Archives, with the exception of Music Department items, which are kept at Greer Music Library.

Honors papers and M.A. theses do not circulate and must be read in the Archives or Special Collections. Photocopying is not allowed, except for small sections, without the written permission of the author. Similarly, they are not lent through Interlibrary Loan, although a copy will be made on request with the permission of the author. Since 2005 some Honors Papers have been made available online through Digital Commons.
