Students in the University Honors Program are automatically eligible for English honors work, as are students who have at least a 3.00 GPA in their English courses. Students who wish to earn a baccalaureate degree with honors in English must graduate with a minimum GPA of 3.50 in the English major and complete 12 semester hours or more of English honors work (including ENGL 497) with a GPA of at least 3.20 in those courses.
Departmental degree with honors is separate but complementary to the University Honors Program. Eligible students may participate in one or both programs simultaneously since there is some overlap in the requirements. Interested students are encouraged to contact the University Honors program for more detailed information.
