College Honors Program

The College Honors program, designed for superior students with unusual initiative and intellectual curiosity, provides an opportunity to pursue two semesters (six credits) of independent research under the direction of a faculty sponsor. Students may pursue a thesis or creative project.

Students may apply for College Honors if they have a cumulative GPA of 3.40 or higher.

Students who wish to pursue College Honors must submit their applications early in the first term of their senior year (please see Important Dates for deadlines). Students who wish to consider undertaking a College Honors project during their junior year should contact the Dean's Office for information concerning the circumstances in which such an exceptional arrangement is possible.

All students in the College of Arts and Sciences who are also members of the Honors College have a shared set of opportunities and responsibilities that come with their "dual citizenship" in both colleges. All Honors College students in the College of Arts and Sciences are required to successfully complete a College Honors thesis or creative project in order to graduate as University Scholars.

Proposals will be evaluated by the College of Arts and Sciences' Honors Committee. For the academic year 2015-16, the Chair of the Committee is Professor Jacques Bailly of the Classics department.

Please contact CAS Honors at 656-3344 with any questions.
