Undergraduate Honors Program Committee

Background: According to the Honors Program Academic Requirements, students are required to take a minimum of two honors courses in each of the following academic areas: Humanities and Fine Arts (G1); Science and Mathematics (G2); and Social Sciences (G3).

Proposal: On Tuesday, October 31, 2000, the Undergraduate Honors Program Committee unanimously recommended a proposal that deleted the above requirement, effective for those students graduating May 2001 and thereafter.

Justification: The change simplifies and streamlines the requirements, giving students more freedom to choose while maintaining core requirements of Calculus, Lab Science, Literary & Intellectual Traditions, and Perspectives with Honors designation.

Note: The deletion of this requirement has no effect whatsoever on the general education distribution required of all students. Moreover, all honors students are still required to take no less than one honors course in each of the academic areas.
