Eligibility for Acceptance:
Qualified students will have cumulative GPAs of at least 3.50 and will have declared a major in the department.

Program of Study:
The 15-credit requirement for Honors in Mathematics or Statistics is met by successfully completing contracts in the following courses:

  • 6 credit hours in upper-division courses are to be taken within the department
  • 3 credit hours of Honors credit to be taken under Senior Thesis/Project (Math 5950 or Stat 5950)
  • 6 additional upper-division credits from within the department or from outside the department, with the Departmental Honors Advisor's approval; Math 1220H or MATH 2210H may be substituted for 3 of the upper-division credits and is highly recommended

*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 3.3 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.
