Students at Ursinus do great in class and do original research: Honors recognizes those who do both.
Students with a high academic record entering their senior year—above a 3.3 GPA overall or in the major—can pursue Honors by completing significant or original work in their major. These projects are some of the finest work Ursinus students have completed, often leading to work in graduate school or by future Ursinus students.
Students who complete a project of remarkable discipline and originality can earn Distinguished Honors. Specific details about Honors requirements are set by each department. Students should consult with their major advisers and the College Catalog for more details.
