Departmental Honors Program
The student who completes the Honors Program in Computer Science will be awarded a degree “with honors in computer science.”
As part of the 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. A committee of three faculty members judges the thesis. The thesis is ordinarily completed during the senior year.
The student who submits an acceptable (“B” or better) honors thesis and whose cumulative grade-point average in all major (CS) courses is at least 3.5 through, and including, the senior year will have completed the Honors Program.
