Departmental Honors

Honors in English

The department offers a two-semester honors program for a small number of seniors whose work in English has been outstanding. Only three of the six honors program credits can be counted toward the major. Minimal requirements for admission to the program are a 3.0 cumulative average (3.5 in English courses) and recommendations to the English honors committee from faculty members acquainted with the applicant’s work. Interested students should contact the director of the major. (Note the descriptions of ENGL 498-499 below.)

Honors in Creative Writing

A few outstanding seniors are invited to work for honors in creative writing by completing an intensive workshop with the director of creative writing in the fall, and working with an individual faculty advisor on a collection of poetry, fiction, or drama in the spring. Requirements for admission are a 3.0 cumulative average, a 3.5 average in English and creative writing courses prior to the fall, and approval by a committee of creative writing faculty. Qualified students should see the Director of the Creative Writing Program in April for details.
