Honors Program

romance languages and literatures

The Honors Program offers its majors a unique opportunity to conduct research and write a thesis on a topic of their choice, under the guidance of a faculty member in the department. Students admitted into the Program will work throughout the senior year with their Thesis Director.

Faculty members will nominate students for the Honors Program in April of their junior year. To be eligible, candidates must be declared majors in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures with a grade point average of 3.4 or higher. No more than nine credits must remain for completion of the major in their senior year. Candidates must also have exhibited the maturity and self-discipline that long-term independent work requires. Nominated students will be invited to meet with the Program Coordinator during the semester preceding their enrollment in the Program. The final decision about acceptance into the Program will be made during the first week of registration.

For complete details, please read the RLL Honors Program Guidelines*. After consulting the guidelines, interested students should contact their current RLL instructor to inquire about nomination to the Program.
