Interdepartmental Honors Program in Philosophy and Religious Studies

Students with a minimum grade point average of 3.300 are eligible for the interdepartmental honors program in philosophy and religious studies, which culminates with one final honors thesis that combines notions from both disciplines. The honors program has the additional following requirement:

One of the following pairs of courses:

  • P498 Senior Seminar and P499 Honors Thesis (Philosophy) or
  • R399 Reading for Honors and R499 Senior Honors Essay, or an appropriate equivalent (Religious Studies)

The choice of the pair depends on whether the student works with a Philosophy or Religious Studies faculty member. The thesis will be judged by an honors committee that consists of members from both departments.
