Computer Science Honors & Professional Organizations
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.
Lambda Epsilon Sigma
Stonehill’s campus-wide honor society, Lambda Epsilon Sigma, recognizes students from all areas of study. Students who have demonstrated a well-rounded thirst for knowledge are invited to apply.
Association for Computing Machinery
The Association for Computing Machinery is the professional organization of computer scientists and is a valuable source for detailed information about computer science and the many career opportunities for computer scientists. Stonehill has a student chapter that hosts lectures, competitions and social events.
