Honors courses in the General Education Requirement (GER)/General Education Program (GEP) or in individual majors are intellectually rigorous and may be taught by more than one faculty member, each from a different department of the University. Honors faculty are selected by the Honors Director working closely with the Honors Committee and Department Chairs. Graduation with General Honors requires successful completion of eight Honors courses. These become part of the student’s regular program and the Honors Program imposes no additional courses. Students must also have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 to receive General Honors.
