Student Research and Creative Projects

Many of our majors -- and minors -- pursue College Honors or other research and creative projects. Some even present or perform their work at national and international conferences. Here are a few recent projects:

  • "The Ideological Evolution of the Black Panther Party," Quadir Bruce '05, history and Africana studies major, independent study/senior research funded by McNair program.
  • The Role of Skin Color in Judgments of Attractiveness," Aisha Nurse '05.
