Students are required to follow the Academic Handbook and Code of Student Responsibility
Students who meet the proficiency requirement by placing at the 200-level of a language may consult with an Honors advisor for alternative Language & Systems courses. Language majors must fulfill the Honors language requirement with alternate Language & Systems courses.
The Honors Program is committed to developing students’ knowledge and cultural awareness so they may respect and learn from difference. Honors students meet the multicultural requirement by completing HON 301, the Junior Seminar in Multiculturalism.
Students who choose to do a thesis must have their project approved at least one term prior to executing the project. To gain approval for a senior thesis, students must complete an application, including a project proposal signed by a faculty advisor. In keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of the program, the thesis should attempt to move outside the boundaries normally associated with one particular discipline and should be supervised by two readers from different academic fields. While the final product must be a substantial piece of work building on the student’s accumulated knowledge and new research, specific requirements for each thesis will depend on the nature of the project. See the Director or Assistant Director for an application.
Honors students who do not have a statistics or calculus requirement for their major must complete HON 180, Data Analysis and Statistics, before completing the science requirements. Honors students who have a statistics or calculus requirement for their major are waived from HON 180, and the course will be replaced by an open elective.
