Honors Program

The Honors Program in International Studies is for outstanding and engaged majors who wish to take on the challenge of actively researching and writing about a topic in international studies. Participants in the Honors Program are required to have a deeper level of language competence than the IS adjunct major itself. Students accepted to the program enroll in a three-part seminar through which they plan, research and write their thesis. Honors students who want to take on the unique challenge of primary research are strongly encouraged to apply for University research support and conduct research either during study abroad or in the summer after junior year, though this is not required for honors.
