Overview

Interdisciplinary Honors is equivalent to Departmental Honors distinction and is specifically for students who wish to combine at least two academic disciplines into one cohesive project. While requirements will vary by discipline, students interested in pursuing Interdisciplinary Honors will work with a faculty member in one of the academic departments, who will serve as their Interdisciplinary Honors faculty advisor, in conjunction with the Honors College. Students will choose one of two options to meet the (at least) 14 credit hour requirement for Interdisciplinary Honors:

  • Three-Course Option: Three upper level courses of at least three credit hours each across at least two disciplines, each in conjunction with HON 4010 (1) for a total of 12 credit hours, plus two hours of HON 4990.
  • Thesis/Project Option: Two upper level courses of at least three credit hours each across two disciplines, each in conjunction with HON 4010, plus at least 6 hours of HON 4990.

Students interested in pursuing Interdisciplinary Honors should first meet with an honors advisor during their second semester of their sophomore year to discuss their interest areas and project ideas.
