Departmental/school honors programs

School and departmental honors programs provide honors students the opportunity to continue their honors education throughout their undergraduate careers. They also allow honors students to take honors courses in their majors. School and departmental honors programs are administered by coordinators from the schools and departments within which they reside. The programs must maintain standards consistent with those of The Honors College. This ensures that students who are eligible to graduate with honors in a discipline are also eligible to graduate with university honors and provides access for all honor students to those resources available through The Honors College.

Selection of courses within school and departmental honors programs is left to the discretion of each school/department, but each program must include a minimum of 12 course credits. Students successfully completing these requirements will receive recognition of their accomplishments on their transcripts.
