To complete the total units required for the bachelor’s degree, select additional

elective courses from the total University offerings. You should

consult with an advisor regarding the selection of courses which will

provide breadth to your University experience and possibly apply to a

supportive second major or minor.

all prerequisite courses or their transfer equivalents.

All courses taken to fulfill major course requirements must be taken for a

letter grade except those courses specified by the department as Credit/No

Credit grading only.

Advising is mandatory for all majors in this degree program. Consult your

undergraduate advisor for specific information.

A student may complete more than one option in the major. Only courses

specifically required by both options may be double counted.

Honors in the Major is a program of independent work in your major. It

requires 6 units of honors course work completed over two semesters.

The Honors in the Major program allows you to work closely with a faculty

mentor in your area of interest on an original performance or research

project. This year-long collaboration allows you to work in your field at a

professional level and culminates in a public presentation of your work.

Students sometimes take their projects beyond the University for submission

in professional journals, presentation at conferences, or academic

competition. Such experience is valuable for graduate school and professional

life. Your honors work will be recognized at your graduation, on

your permanent transcripts, and on your diploma. It is often accompanied

by letters of commendation from your mentor in the department or the

department chair.

Some common features of Honors in the Major program are

1. You must take 6 units of Honors in the Major course work. All 6 units

are honors classes (marked by a suffix of H), and at least 3 of these units

are independent study (399H, 499H, 599H) as specified by your department.

You must complete each class with a minimum grade of B.

2. You must have completed 9 units of upper-division course work or 21

overall units in your major before you can be admitted to Honors in the

Major. Check the requirements for your major carefully, as there may be

specific courses that must be included in these units.

3. Your cumulative GPA should be at least 3.5 or within the top 5% of

majors in your department.

4. Your GPA in your major should be at least 3.5 or within the top 5% of

majors in your department.

5. Most students apply for or are invited to participate in Honors in the

Major during the second semester of their junior year. Then they complete

the 6 units of course work over the two semesters of their senior year.

6. Your honors work culminates with a public presentation of your honors

project.

While Honors in the Major is part of the Honors Program, each department

administers its own program. Please contact your major department

or major advisor to apply.

Well-qualified Mathematics majors are encouraged to apply for Honors

in Mathematics. The program is open to junior and senior Mathematics

majors who have completed 9 upper-division units (or a total of 24 units)

in mathematics, including MATH 420 with a grade of B or better, and

have a grade point average among the top 5% of junior-senior mathematics

majors. Please visit the department office in HOLT 181 for further

information.
