Rather than additional requirements, it's really about having more interesting ways to fulfill the same requirements. All Honors students are members of the College of Literature, Science & Arts. As such, you will fulfill certain areas: language, quantitative reasoning, race and ethnicity, writing requirements, and area distribution. Many Honors courses are designated to meet them, so that both meeting Honors expectations and taking Honors courses shapes how you meet LSA requirements, rather than changing specific requirements themselves.
For example, the courses designated to fulfill the Texts and Ideas requirement also fulfill humanities distribution and Introductory Composition. To participate in the Honors program, you'll fulfill the Text & Ideas requirement, which forms the backbone of our program. You will take an average of two Honors courses per term in the first two years and maintain a 3.4 GPA. Most students find that their Honors courses are so engaging and interesting that maintaining the required GPA is not overwhelmingly difficult.
Graduation with Honors involves completing the Honors requirements in your major; this usually involves writing an Honors thesis demonstrating your own research in your field. In addition, or alternatively, you can pursue Honors in the Liberal Arts by taking especially challenging courses outside your major.
