Amanda Stovicek to Give Honors Presentation at Heidelberg University

2012 Apr 18

Amanda Stovicek of Shaker Heights, OH, who is enrolled in the Honors Program at Heidelberg University, is scheduled to present her senior Honors project next week.

Stovicek, who is majoring in English, will present her research on the topic "Grimm Transformations" as the culmination of Honors Program requirements before graduation.

Each Honors student, during the senior year, works with a faculty mentor to complete a capstone project that derives from their major field. The research project is designed to individualize and deepen their understanding of a topic of compelling interest in their major.

Honors students work with their faculty mentor on research and writing for the project. The final project is presented in writing and the student also is required to present their projects before the campus community.

This year, a total of 32 students will be presenting their senior Honors projects from April 23-26. Heidelberg's Honors Program, titled "The Life of the Mind," empowers the most outstanding students to explore their abilities within a supportive community of scholars and learners. The program is comprised of four intellectual areas: the Scholar, the Scientist, the Artist and the Citizen.

Heidelberg, founded in 1850, offers 36 courses of study in 19 major fields of concentration, awarding the bachelor of arts, bachelor of science, bachelor of music, as well as master's degrees in education, counseling, business administration and music.
