Philosophy B.A. or B.S. with Honors

Admission to the departmental honors program requires the approval of the department chair, and will be available only to juniors or seniors who have a GPA of at least 3.25 in all work and of 3.40 or above in philosophy courses.

Accepted candidates must complete the normal requirements for the philosophy major and an honors thesis under PHIL 491H for 2-4 semester hours. The senior honors thesis must be approved, and the grade for PHIL 491H must be assigned by the supervising instructor. The "H" or "Honors" designation then must be approved by a committee consisting of the supervising instructor, the undergraduate advisor, and the chair of the department.
