Steps to earn a Departmental Honors designation
At the beginning of the quarter the student negotiates a Departmental Honors proposal (enrichment) with the professor --e.g. additional research and writing, a creative project, additional reading, etc. Although not required, this could also be an oral presentation.
It is the student's responsibility to obtain a Departmental Honors form from the Honors office or online, have the professor sign it at the end of the course, and return it to Honors with an attached description of the extra work completed. No final course grade below 3.3 will be accepted for Honors credit.
Departmental Honors provides involvement opportunities, benefits, and challenges--especially for students planning for graduate or professional school. We encourage students to phone, email, or visit Honors with questions about Departmental Honors at Eastern.
