HONORS IN MATHEMATICS
Seniors who research and write an honors thesis will be eligible to graduate with honors in mathematics. Under the direction of a faculty advisor, candidates will complete a 2 to 4 credit independent study in an area not covered by existing courses, culminating in an honors thesis of high quality which will be defended orally to department faculty toward the end of the spring term of the senior year. The minimum GPA for honors candidates is 3.5 in the major and 3.0 overall. See department faculty for details.
