The requirement for graduation with Honors is an Honors Thesis of 40-50 pages in length, typically the culmination of a year’s work, and two courses designated as Honors courses. Admission to the Honors track requires an application in the second semester of a student’s Junior year. It normally requires a GPA of 3.65 overall and in Linguistics, but this requirement can be waived by the College of Arts and Science Director of College Honors in exceptional circumstances by petition from the Director of Undergraduate Studies. The application must be made by April 15. It consists of a one to two page application by the student, specifying why the student wants to pursue an Honors track, and specifying in rough form the topic that the student wishes to investigate in the thesis. The application should identify faculty members from two departments in the Language and Mind major (normally from Linguistics, Philosophy, and Psychology) who will be co-advisors. The thesis topic, needless to say, should reflect contributions to both disciplines. The student will be notified by the beginning of registration for the next semester about their acceptance into the Honors program. If accepted, the faculty members who have agreed to supervise the student’s Honors thesis will become the student’s Honors advisors, and the two Honors courses will be chosen jointly by the student and the Honors advisors. Honors track students are expected to engage in research with faculty members affiliated with the major.
