** These courses are the AMS electives which will be offered in Fall I 2007 to fulfill the 3 course AMS elective requirement of the program. Additional AMS elective courses may be offered in the future at the discretion of the AMS Department.
Current students who have already taken any of these courses, or new students who have transfer credit for any of these courses, can substitute other honor courses at the discretion of the program director. In addition, students who do not want to participate in the full honors program can still take individual honors courses.
- Successful completion of the Honors Freshman Seminar (for students entering the program during their first semester at the college)
- Leadership Project on campus or local community (collaborating with a student club, student organization or college program to implement a project that will benefit the student population, meet a goal in the college’s strategic plan, or that will connect the college to the local community)
- Must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.1 over two semesters to remain in the Program and have a minimum overall cumulative GPA of 3.2 to graduate with Honors Program designation.
- Regular meetings with the program director and/or assigned faculty mentor for advisement (at least twice a semester)
- A graduating essay (to be developed from research done in consultation with the director of the program)
Admittance to the Honors Program Concentration as a full-time student (exceptions allowed) is based on a minimum GPA of 3.2 and 12 credits completed, or a B+ (85) or above high school average. Also required is an application essay on the applicant’s educational goals, and an interview with the director of the program. The latter two requirements are not necessary for students who are only registering for individual honors courses without completing the full program requirements.
