We are now accepting applications for the English Department Honors Program for 2015-16.  The program is designed to provide exceptional students with an opportunity to participate in a two-semester seminar culminating in an Honors thesis written in consultation with faculty advisors. English majors are eligible to apply in the spring of their junior year and must have a GPA of at least 3.0 overall and 3.25 in English Department courses. An application form is attached. Applications will also be available in the English Department Office and in an envelope on the door of Professor Patrick Cook’s office at Rome 752. The application deadline is March 15.
If you are interested in the program, please try to attend an information session on Thursday, February 12, from 1 pm to 2:30 pm in Rome Hall 663. Professor Patrick Cook will discuss the requirements and the application process. Students admitted to the program are also eligible to apply for the combined BA/MA Program, which allows majors to earn both a BA and MA degree in English within five years of study. At the information session, Professor Chris Sten will discuss the the requirements and application process for this combined degree program.
