The Honors Program
Requirements for Graduating from The Honors Program
To graduate from The Honors Program, you must take at least twenty-four (24) credit hours of Honors courses (course numbers tagged with an H).
At least twelve (12) hours should be from general education core requirements. This provides broad exposure to honors work across academic disciplines, particularly in the liberal arts. It also provides ongoing interaction with honors students in other disciplines.
At least nine (9) hours should come from upper division courses in your major. This provides more depth in your area of focus.
In addition, you will complete a project of original research or its equivalent for your discipline (this may be satisfied as a regular part of your coursework or as an independent project).
You must maintain a cumulative Judson GPA of 3.3 or higher. If the cumulative GPA falls below 3.3, you will have one semester to bring the cumulative GPA back up to at least 3.3. Two consecutive semesters of a cumulative GPA below 3.3 will make you ineligible to graduate from The Honors Program.
Honors course activity is recorded at the top of your Degree Audit in the Student Web. In addition, the Honors Program Checklist may be used to track your progress through your academic career. Please contact Dr. Craig Kaplowitz, Director of The Honors Program, with any questions about your progress through the program.
