Departmental Honors

The Department offers advanced students an opportunity to complete their major with honors. The purpose is to provide a more stimulating and in-depth undergraduate experience. It also gives students an opportunity to receive recognition for their achievements. Successful completion of the honors major is noted on the student’s transcript. The requirements for the honors major involve course work, an honors paper, and an overall grade point average of 3.5 in sociology or criminal justice courses. See the department handbook for details.

Students with a 3.0 overall grade point average and a 3.0 in sociology with at least 12 credit hours in sociology courses taken at the University are eligible for admission to Alpha Kappa Delta, the international sociology honor society.

Further details about the honors major and Alpha Kappa Delta are available from the department office.
