College Honors

There is no special class associated with honors. Honors in philosophy is awarded in recognition of excellence in work done for the senior essay and seminar, and will be determined by the philosophy faculty as a whole once final versions of the senior essays have been submitted.

To be eligible for honors, a student must have at least a 3.25 GPA overall and a 3.5 GPA in the major. Additionally, the student will be required to enroll in the senior seminar in their senior year and complete a comprehensives paper. The paper must earn Distinction, which is to be determined by the instructor of the senior seminar in consultation with members of the philosophy department. See the Honors Program and consult the department chair for further details.
