Honors in Major
The honors-in-major program allows students to further challenge themselves by pursuing an ambitious set of classes and projects within their major. Upon completion of the requirements, a student is eligible to graduate with "Honors in Selected Major" designation. You do not have to be enrolled in the University Honors Program (a 32-credit program) to pursue the Honors-in-Major option (a 16-credit program). All University Honors-in-Major Program participants must, however, complete the 16 credit Honors-in-Major coursework as part of their overall University Honors-in-Major requirements.
