Honors Program

The honors program in the Department of Communication is targeted towards exceptional communication majors, defined as those whose overall GPA is 3.70 or higher. The honors program offers smaller class sizes to allow more focused discussion and faculty-student interaction. Honors courses will also be more rigorous than non-honors courses and may include additional reading, written assignments or exams. Students in the honors program will complete a thesis in order to officially graduate with department honors. Students in the honors program are automatically eligible for membership in Lambda Pi Eta, the national Communication honors society. Questions about Lambda Pi Eta can be directed to Professor Michael Serazio, Director of the Boston College chapter of the organization. Questions about eligibility or other aspects of the department’s honors program can be directed to Professor Celeste Wells, Director of the Communication Department Honors Program or the Coordinator of the Communication Department Honors Program.
