CHANGES IN REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATING WITH HONORS IN CLASSICS 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 College of Liberal Arts chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog, 1998-2000, in the section "ACADEMIC POLICIES AND PROCEDURES," subsection "DEPARTMENTAL HONORS PROGRAMS," make the following changes:

Classics Honors Program

Majors who are candidates for special honors in Greek, special honors in Latin, or special honors in classics should apply to the honors adviser for admission to the honors program at least one full academic year before their expected graduation. A University grade point average of at least 3.00 and a grade point average in Greek (for Greek majors), Latin (for Latin majors), or Greek, Latin, and classical civilization combined (for classics majors) of at least 3.50 are required for admission. The requirements for graduation with special honors, which are in addition to the requirements of the major, are (1) Greek 679H, Latin 679H, or Classical Civilization 679H, Honors Tutorial Course, with a grade of A in each half; (2) [satisfactory performance on a comprehensive honors examination; (3)] a University grade point average of at least 3.00 and a grade point average in Greek (for Greek majors), Latin (for Latin majors), or Greek, Latin, and classical civilization combined (for classics majors) of at least 3.50 in the thirty-three hours of coursework required for the major; and (3) [(4)] completion at the University of at least sixty semester hours of coursework counted toward the degree.

Rationale:
To stipulate the letter grade required in order to graduate with honors in the Department of Classics and to remove the requirement of completion of a comprehensive honors examination, a requirement that has not been enforced in recent history.
