Departmental Honors










Departmental Honors

The department offers an honors option in English for seniors with a 3.6 GPA or higher in English who wish to complete an ambitious piece of research and writing under the individual direction of a faculty member or in conjunction with a senior seminar. Interested students should discuss this option with the Associate Chair and then choose a member of the faculty as an advisor for the thesis. The thesis is to be written over the course of one semester, ending with an honors defense with the advisor and one departmental reader. That committee then evaluates whether the thesis defense qualifies the student for departmental honors. 
English majors who are minoring in creative writing or completing the creative writing option may undertake a creative writing project for honors.
