Honors in the Arts

Stanford Arts Institute administers an interdisciplinary capstone program in the arts. This program is open to Stanford seniors in any major.


The Honors in the Arts program allows students from any major to combine their critical and creative interests by completing an interdisciplinary capstone program in the arts during their senior year.

Applications for individual projects and group projects (two or more students) will be evaluated, and projects with real world impact are encouraged. All accepted projects are eligible for modest financial support.

We are particularly interested in experimental work that engages new forms of expression for a 21st-century audience. Additionally, we are committed to building a cohort that reflects a diversity of identities, experiences, educational backgrounds, and artistic and scholarly interests. Such diversity only enhances our interdisciplinary and collaborative endeavors.

Through a yearlong process, students develop a capstone project that goes beyond the traditional boundaries of their major.

The Honors in the Arts can be completed in addition to honors work in a student's home department or alongside another capstone program (such as The Senior Reflection in Biology).

Deadline extended! Applications are due by 11:59PM Friday, April 16th, 2021.
