Computer Science Honors & Professional Organizations

Departmental Honors

Students who complete the Honors Program in Computer Science will be awarded a degree “with honors in Computer Science.”

As part of the Honors Program, a student must write an honors thesis on a topic in computer science chosen in consultation with a faculty member who acts as the student’s major advisor on the thesis. The thesis is ordinarily completed during the senior year.

A committee of three faculty members judges the thesis, and the student who submits an acceptable (“B” or better) honors thesis and whose cumulative grade-point average in all major (CSC) courses is at least 3.5 through and including the senior year will have completed the Honors Program.
