For students in the UMass Lowell Commonwealth Honors College
, there are additional opportunities to work with CTSS faculty. The first is through the Honors Fellowship Program. Honors students can apply to receive a fellowship to work 100 hours during the semester on a project, a creative activity or a theme-based reading program. The students will be mentored by a CTSS faculty member and work on the project in the Security Studies field.
Honors students create an Honors Thesis during their last year at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. This is normally completed through two semesters of independent study. Students interested in completing their Honors Thesis in the terrorism or security study field can choose a CTSS faculty member to be their thesis mentor. The student will create a thesis statement or hypothesis and support it through data, analysis, and argument.
