Complete description of the program can be found at at this link.

An Honors Options is a more intensive and/or extensive work or study of high quality that results in a written paper or multi-media project. Students wishing to complete an Honors Option should procure an Honors Option Agreement form, have it completed by the instructor and returned to the department by the midterm of the semester. Final approval of Honors Options is at the discretion of the Associate Chair.

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 can 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.
