Honors Major


Honors in Spanish is granted if in addition to fulfilling all requirements for the major, the student:

  • maintained a GPA of 3.5 or above in departmental courses
  • maintained an overall GPA of 3.0 or above; and
  • completed a senior thesis of 25-30 pages written under the supervision of a faculty member whose research is related to the topic of the thesis.

At least one semester of study abroad is recommended.

Students should declare their intention to pursue the Honors major no later than at the beginning of their senior year. The thesis will be evaluated by the advisor and two other faculty members in the department. Students may take an independent study with their supervisor that will fulfill the requirement of one upper-level course. For further information, consult with the director of undergraduate studies.
