Linguistics MAJORS wishing to participate in the honors program in their senior year must make written application to the Undergraduate Program Director no later than May 15 of their junior year.
To be considered, a student must have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or better and a grade-point average of 3.4 or better in courses counting toward the Linguistics major. Students selected to participate in the program enroll in 01:615:495/496 and spend two terms researching and writing an honors thesis under the supervision of a faculty member from the Linguistics department.
After the thesis is submitted, an oral examination on the thesis is given by a committee consisting of at least two Linguistics department faculty members. The committee does not include the student's honors program supervisor. On the basis of the committee's report on the thesis and the examination, the department determines whether the student is to be recommended for departmental honors.
