Honors Writing Resources

Writing Boot Camps 

We offer two types of Honors Thesis Boot Camps:

  • A Department or Program-Specific Boot Camp is hosted for students from a single department/ program. Dates are set in consultation with the department and we ask for the department's help in recruiting students to attend,
  • An Open Boot Camp is offered to any Honors thesis writer. We schedule the date and advertise it to students via their Honors director or student services manager.

For more information or to schedule a Department/Program Specific Honors Boot Camps, please email humecenter@stanford.edu.

Writing Workshops

We offer various workshops of relevance to Honors thesis writers, on topics such as starting or managing the long project, crafting and sustaining an argument, or writing according to disciplinary conventions. Please contact us to request more information: humecenter@stanford.edu

Individual Consultations

The Hume Center offers individual writing consultations to students writing their Honors thesis. We particularly encourage Honors students to make several appointments to work with a consultant at various stages of the writing process. Students can view the profiles of our consultants in order to select someone whose interests match theirs.
