Departmental Honors Program
Outstanding students are eligible for admission to the CEUS honors program at the end of their junior year. Under the guidance of a faculty sponsor, students will complete an honors thesis as part of their Capstone Seminar (R491) during their senior year. The thesis underscores original and independent research and the use of sources in the student’s language of specialization. Students then defend the thesis before an Honors Committee and should achieve a final thesis grade of A– or higher. To graduate with honors, students must maintain a minimum 3.300 cumulative and 3.500 major GPA. Interested students should consult the department’s director of undergraduate studies.
