CHANGES IN REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATING WITH HONORS IN ASIAN STUDIES IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 1998-2000, OF THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN

 

On page 241, in the Liberal Arts chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog, 1998-2000, in the section "ACADEMIC POLICIES AND PROCEDURES," subsection "DEPARTMENTAL HONORS PROGRAMS," make the following changes:

Asian Studies Honors Program

Majors who wish to qualify for special honors in Asian studies should apply to the undergraduate adviser for admission to the honors program before their senior year. A University grade point average of at least 3.00 is required for admission to the honors program. The [R]requirements for graduation with special honors are (1) Asian Studies 378, Senior Seminar in Asian Studies, with a grade of at least B; (2) Asian Studies 379H, Honors Tutorial Course, with a grade of A; [in which the student must present a thesis judged acceptable for honors; (3) satisfactory performance on an oral or written examination centered on the honors thesis; (4)] (3) a University grade point average of at least 3.00 and a grade point average in Asian studies of at least 3.50; and [(5)] (4) completion at the University of at least sixty semester hours of coursework counted toward the degree.

Rationale:
Specify the grade deemed "acceptable" for completing the requirements of ANS 379H, and delete the requirement of an oral or written examination.
