Graduate with Departmental Honors
The Department of Physics, Astronomy and Geosciences, under the direction of the University Honors Board, offers a departmental honors program for students who demonstrate exemplary abilities in their discipline. Such students will work closely with faculty mentors in an individual program of research, directed readings, independent study and seminar. The student who completes an approved program will receive a diploma with the designation of Bachelor of Arts with Honors, or Bachelor of Science with Honors, and departmental honors will appear on the transcript.
