Special Department Honors

Crandall Lab in Panama

Students from Crandall Lab dive for specimens in Panama.

Undergraduate biology majors may graduate with Special Departmental Honors if they meet academic requirements and complete a research project. Honors students must maintain a cumulative 3.5 grade point average in biological science courses and at least a 3.0 cumulative overall grade point average. Qualifying students will submit a written proposal outlining their experimental research project and then complete the project under the direction of a faculty member. The results of these projects, typically completed in the senior year, will be a written honors thesis and an oral presentation to the entire departmental faculty. For more information please see Guidelines for Special Departmental Honors.
