ARCH Program

About ARCH

The Advanced Research and Creativity in Honors (ARCH) program provides opportunities to Honors College students to engage in supervised research and creative projects under the supervision of FIU faculty experts from all academic areas. Students register for IDH 4905 and take a series of online workshops on research methods. They then present their work at the annual FIU Undergraduate Research Conference. Students can take ARCH for zero credit or they can take it for credit to satisfy their Honors junior or senior year requirement. ARCH program students will be required to write a thesis and present their work at the annual FIU Undergraduate Research Conference. If the department does not have a thesis, capstone, or senior project option, Honors requirements will apply.
