Graduation Requirements
 

Most of the students in the Honors Program
are pursuing the distinction of graduating with "Honors in General Education." This distinction is awarded to students who complete the following Honors Program requirements:

  • English 111 or 312;
  • 15-17 credit hours of Honors variants of GEP courses from an approved list; and
  • 6 credit hours of interdisciplinary courses:
  • IDIS 351 Honors Advanced Colloquium
  • IDIS 491 Honors Seminar
  • IDIS 493 Honors Thesis
  • Experiential Learning Option: Approved Study Abroad course, Undergraduate Research Project, Internship, Departmental Recital or other experiential learning experience (3 credits will count for the Honors Program requirement on approval of the Honors Program Advisory Group. Pre-approval is necessary).

Honors students must earn a 3.0 average in all courses within the program to meet Honors requirements and have at least a 3.0 cumulative grade point average upon graduation.

ENGL 111 is required of all students entering the Honors Program as first semester students. Students electing to join this program after their first semester are required to take ENGL 312.

Honors Experiential Learning course work, IDIS 493 Honors Thesis and IDIS 491 Honors Seminars may, with departmental approval, count towards requirements in the major. IDIS 491 credit hours may, with approval of the Honors Program Advisory Group, substitute for portions of the Modes of Inquiry section of the General Education Program.

Students and their advisors will receive a letter each semester informing them of the student's progress toward completion of the Honors Program requirements.
