To receive honors in English, students must achieve a minimum GPA of 3.5 in the major and submit for evaluation a critical or creative writing project of substantial length. The proposal for an honors project must be submitted to the department’s Honors/Independent Projects committee by March 1st of the semester preceding the beginning of the project.

The project is developed in English 498 (Honors Projects) under the direction of a faculty advisor, and is offered only in the fall semester. Critical projects usually examine the works of a particular writer, or a literary theme or practice that two or more writers share. Creative projects are usually collections of original poetry, fiction, prose essays or screenplays.
