A student who satisfies the requirements of the College for admission to the Honors Program and
is interested in doing independent work is strongly encouraged to participate in the departmental
Honors Program. Students who successfully complete the Honors Program will have their degrees
conferred with 'Honors' or 'High Honors' in mathematics; high honors is awarded only if the student
submits a written thesis. Interested students should read carefully the section *The Honors
Program in Mathematics* found in the *Dartmouth ORC* and consult with the Department Advisor
to Mathematics Majors.

This program can be especially important to those who contemplate graduate work in mathematics or a related field.

The following honors theses are available in PDF in full-text or abstract format.
