Honors in GeographyPicture8

Participating in the Geography Honors program will allow you to graduate with honors or highest honors in the geography major. To qualify for honors, students must have a minimum GPA of 3.300, and a minimum GPA of 3.4 in Geography courses. Please read the attached document (link to the provided PDF) for further information regarding grading, submission, and other requirements as established by the College of Arts and Sciences.

Honors projects are developed along with a faculty member with appropriate skill or expertise. Interested qualifying students are encouraged to discuss their ideas with faculty who work on corresponding themes and topics. Candidates will enroll in two courses (691H and 692H) in their Senior year. During that time, students will write an honors thesis, which will be approved by the sponsoring faculty member and one additional faculty member from any department on campus. Additional information about the senior honors thesis can be found here , or by speaking with the Director of Undergraduate Studies in Geography. If you don’t know what an honors thesis might look like, the Writing Center offers some guidelines.
