  • Honors


In order to be considered for Honors in French, German, Humanities, or Spanish, a student must satisfy the following criteria:

1)  Students interested in Honors should consult with the Department Chair during the spring semester of the junior year. Qualifying students must have a 3.2 overall GPA as well as a 3.5 GPA in French, German, Humanities, or Spanish courses.

2)  Honors candidates should register for French, German, Humanities (Art History, Music History, or General Humanities), or SPAN 502 in the fall semester of the senior year. Under the guidance of a faculty member, they will use this course to complete a research paper. This paper will be evaluated by all professors in the student’s field of study. If the evaluation is positive, the student will make an oral presentation of the paper in the spring.
