Honors Program

Sociology majors may be awarded honors for excellence in the major, as reflected by both a high overall grade point average and the successful completion of an honors thesis.

Sociology majors are awarded one of four designations: (1) no honors; (2) honors (cum laude); (3) high honors (magna cum laude); and (4) highest honors (summa cum laude).

If you are interested in participating in the Honors Program, you should begin preparing for this during your junior year.
