Qualified students will have cumulative GPAs of at least 3.50 and will have declared a major in Philosophy.

The 15-credit requirement for Honors in Philosophy is met by successfully completing contracts in the following courses:

  • At least 6 credits in courses numbered 3000 or above must be taken in Philosophy
  • 3 credits must be taken under Senior Thesis/Project (PHIL 4930)
  • 3 credits may be taken under Senior Seminar (PHIL 4920)
  • 3 upper-division credits from outside the department will be accepted, with the approval of the Departmental Honors Advisor

*Nothing lower than a B grade is acceptable in courses in which an Honors contract is being completed.
**Students who fail to complete a contract, once entered into with a faculty member, will be placed on academic probation for one semester.

Requirements for Completion of Degree:
The successful candidate will graduate with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 and a GPA of 3.5 in upper-division major requirements and Honors course work and will complete and present in a public forum an Honors thesis/project. Many students have found it helpful to relate the courses taken on Honors contract to the final thesis/project.
