English Honors Program
The Department of English encourages students with meritorious academic records to seek a BA or BAA with Honors in English. A GPA of at least 3.20 overall and at least 3.4 in the major is required. An honors paper or creative writing project must be completed in a 5000-level course or through independent study. Completed projects and papers must be approved by a sponsoring faculty member and by the department honors committee. Students who wish to qualify for department honors will request an honors project application form from the department office and must apply for admission to the honors program no later than the sixth week of the first semester of their senior year then submit it with the approval of the faculty adviser for the project, and complete the paper or project by a specified time to gain approval of both the project adviser and the department honors committee, before graduation announcement deadlines.
