The seminars are open to honors students only and are designed specifically for them. The seminar format allows students to investigate topics in-depth and to discuss their findings with highly motivated colleagues.
The independent study, covering a topic of the student's choice, is completed under the direction of an English faculty member. The resultant thesis may be submitted for university and departmental honors.
The student who completes the two seminars and successfully defends the thesis receives an English Honors Certificate.
An English major who has accumulated sixty credit hours with 3.5 English and 3.0 overall averages, completed one course in the series 301,302, 313, 314, 315, 316, 317 and obtained a recommendation from a faculty member may apply for admission to the program.
