Students are required to follow the Academic Handbook and Code of Student Responsibility
Students pursuing a degree in the School of Music are to follow the Honors Program Requirements listed below:
Honors students in Music who do not have a calculus or statistics requirement for their major must complete HON 180, Data Analysis and Statistics or LSP 120, Math and Technological Literacy I, before enrolling in HON 207 or the science requirement.
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 first 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 Associate Director for an application. Students may opt to also enroll in HON 300: Honors Research Seminar (a two-credit elective) to receive dedicated guidance as they prepare the thesis project.
