The Honors Program offers a highly advantageous academic experience for qualified English majors, that is, students who are entering their senior year and have a 3.3 GPA and a 3.3 GPA in English. During the entirety of their senior year, Honors students are given the rare undergraduate opportunity to work together intensively in a small group. Students who meet the program standards are awarded Honors in English—a decided asset in any future endeavor, whether it be graduate study or a professional career.
This year’s topic is “Bad Romance” and is being taught by Dr. William Orchard, as you can see in the image below:
For further information or to apply, please see the honors chairperson, Professor Jason Tougaw (Klapper 633), or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Application forms are available in the English department office or via email from Professor Tougaw. He will do his best to answer any questions. On acceptance, space will be held for you in next year’s seminar, for which you will register as usual during preregistration week.
Note: Students must enroll in the first (fall) half of the Honors Seminar during the spring semester of their junior year; it is not possible to join the seminar in mid-course. Participation in the seminar satisfies two of the requirements for the English major: it substitutes for the required Senior Seminar and for one of the required Elective courses.
