Students who have completed significant credits toward graduation before deciding to pursue an honors degree, and for whom completing the entire Honors curriculum would not be practical, may pursue “Departmental Honors”. To receive a designation of "Departmental Honors," students must successfully complete an Honors thesis in their major or minor, have at least a 3.50 GPA, and meet the specific honors requirements of their major or minor department. These students may also elect to take Honors courses and participate in other Honors College activities. The Dean of the Honors College, the Dean of the relevant College or School, and the Chair or Director of the relevant minor must approve all Departmental Honors graduation designations. Please consult departmental sections of the Bulletin for any additional honors requirements specific to your major or minor.
