A creative project in the context of Honors in the Major work may be defined as one that results in a performance or product rather than a written document. It can take varies forms and types of presentations based on the area of focus.
A written report on the project is still required, in this case with a minimum length of 10 pages of text plus documentation (bibliography, appendices, and the like). The report may focus on various aspects which may include, but are not limited to, one or more of the following:
- Historical, cultural, stylistic, analytic, or interpretive perspectives on roles or works performed.
- A chronology of the conception and evolution of the project.
- A description of the intention and significance of the project, tools and methods used and why chosen.
- An analysis of how the project compares to other works in its genre.
