Complete description of the program can be found on the Honors College website.

An Honors Options consists of an intensive project of high quality that results in a written paper or multi-media product. Students wishing to complete an Honors Option should talk to their instructors early in the semester.  Once a project is decided on, the instructor will get approval from the associate chair.  Once the project is approved, students may access the appropriate form by selecting “Student-Instructor Forms” from the Students Resources menu on the Registrar’s Office website. This should be done as early in the semester as possible but no later than the middle of the semester. Honors Options are available in all department courses except for first and second-year language courses. Students must earn a minimum grade of 3.0 in the course, in addition to satisfactory completion of the H-Option project, in order to be eligible for the H-Option designation.

Graduate student instructors may oversee the Honors Option under the supervision of a department faculty member. Graduate-level courses will automatically count as an honors course with no additional work required.

Instructors are encouraged to include Honors Option information on their syllabi.
