All ASC Honors students must complete a minimum of 18 hours of Honors coursework (Honors or Honors embedded coursework which is designated H or E) or Honors-quality coursework which includes:
- All GE theme courses must be Honors courses (H or E courses) OR Honors-quality courses.
- At least one Honors or Honors-quality course in the Arts and Humanities, one in the Natural and Mathematical Sciences, and one in the Social and Behavioral Sciences – this requirement can
overlap with other requirements (GE, major, minor) but may not be fulfilled with AP credit.
- Any Honors requirements within your major
All Honors students will design, carry out, and defend a project that is approved by your faculty/departmental Honors advisor and the ASC Honors Committee. An Honors Project is a challenging, original project
completed by a student’s fourth year. While many students complete a classic Honors thesis, the honors project could be a service-learning
project, a research experience, an internship, or a creative arts project. In every case, the student must prepare a proposal that must be
approved by their faculty/department Honors advisor and by the ASC Honors Committee.
To remain in the program and earn Honors in the Arts and Sciences, students must:
- Maintain a 3.4 GPA;
- Meet at least twice per year with their ASC Honors advisor;
- Submit an Honors Project Planning Form at the end of years one
and two (to maintain Honors status);
- Submit an Honors Project Proposal by the end of year three
(approved by department);
- Complete an Honors Project Report by the end of year four or the
semester of graduation (and include it in your ePortfolio as part of
your Reflection bookend); and
- Present their work at the Honors Project Symposium or another
approved forum by the end of year four or the semester of
graduation (thesis defense).
