CHANGES IN REQUIREMENTS FOR THE SPANISH HONORS PROGRAM IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

On page 248, in the section ACADEMIC POLICIES AND PROCEDURES, under the heading HONORS, make the following changes:

Spanish Honors Program

The Spanish Honors Program offers selected Spanish majors more advanced and independent study than is possible under the regular degree plan. Students interested in this program should contact the department honors adviser prior to their senior year. A University grade point average of at least 3.00 and a grade point average in Spanish of at least 3.50 are required for admission. The requirements for graduation with special honors are [(1) completion of the requirements for the major in Spanish; (2) two sections of the honors courses, Spanish 378H and 379H, as described in the following paragraph, with a grade of A in each; this coursework may be counted toward the semester hours required for the major; (3)] (1) either Spanish 378H and 379H with a grade of A in each, or two sections of Spanish 379H with a grade of A in each; (2) a University grade point average of at least 3.00 and a grade point average [in upper-division coursework in Spanish] of at least 3.50 in the coursework required for the major and for honors; and [(4)] (3) completion at the University of at least sixty semester hours of coursework counted toward the degree.

Spanish 378H, Honors Seminar, is offered as an organized course, while 379H, Honors Thesis, is offered by individual instruction. [Students may fulfill the coursework requirement above in any one of the following ways: (1) by taking two semesters of Spanish 378H; (2) by taking two semesters of Spanish 379H, in which they complete an honors thesis in Spanish under the supervision of a department faculty member; or (3) by taking Spanish 378H in the first semester, followed in the second semester by Spanish 379H, in which they complete an honors report in Spanish.] Students who choose to take two semesters of Spanish 379H conduct individual research on a literary, linguistic, or cultural topic in the first semester and complete an honors thesis in the second semester. The studentÐs research and writing are supervised by a department faculty member. Students who choose to take Spanish 378H and 379H study a literary, linguistic, or cultural topic in the first semester; in the second semester, they complete an honors report under faculty supervision.

Spanish 378H may be counted toward the requirements of the major; Spanish 379H is taken in addition to the major requirements.

Rationale: To strengthen the Honors Program in Spanish.
