Honors in Sport Studies

The sport studies honors program offers students the opportunity to pursue special interests in individual, in-depth research. Honors students must be members of the University of Iowa Honors Program, which requires that students maintain a cumulative University of Iowa g.p.a. of at least 3.33 (contact the University of Iowa Honors Program for more information).

Under the guidance of an undergraduate advisor, honors students define a research project. Project proposals ideally are made by the end of the junior year. Each student completes the project under the guidance of a supervising faculty member and may register for up to 3 s.h. in SPST:4999 Honors Project.

Honors students must make an oral or poster presentation of the honors thesis in a venue approved by the supervising faculty member.
