Students have two choices to graduate in the Honors College:
1. the traditional path OR 2. the minor in Honors Studies.
To graduate in the Honors College through the traditional path, students must complete a minimum of five honors courses for a total of 15 hours.
To graduate in the Honors College through the minor in Honors Studies, students must complete a minimum of seven honors courses for a total of 21 hours.
Benefits of Graduating in the Honors College
Students who complete either the traditional path or the minor in Honors Studies will be presented a medallion to wear at graduation, and will be listed separately in the commencement booklet at graduation, along with the title of their theses and the names of their supervising professors. Students' transcripts will feature special designations of their graduation in the Honors College.
Writing the thesis can also prove a benefit when applying to graduate or professional school, or applying to a job after graduation. Admissions committees in many of the best graduate and professional schools often consider students especially well qualified who have already participated successfully in the original research represented by an honors thesis.
