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

On page 245, in the section ACADEMIC POLICIES AND PROCEDURES, under the heading HONORS, make the following changes:

History Honors Program

[Upper-division h] History majors who plan to seek special honors in history should apply to the honors adviser for admission to the honors program [before or at the beginning of the first] in the fall semester of the junior year. Application forms and information about the program are available in the History Undergraduate Advising Office, Garrison Hall 118. The requirements for graduation with special honors, which are in addition to the requirements of the major, are [(1) completion of six semester hours in history in addition to the thirty hours required for the major; (2) completion of the following courses: History 350L, Undergraduate Seminar in History;] (1) History 347L, Seminar in Historiography, [for juniors in the honors program;] normally taken in the spring semester of the junior year; this course may be counted toward the thirty hours in history required for the major; (2) History 679H, Honors Tutorial Course, [a two-semester course to be completed in the senior year] with a grade of at least B in each half; (3) satisfactory performance on [a comprehensive honors examination] an oral examination centered on the thesis completed in History 679HB; (4) a University grade point average of at least 3.00 and a grade point average [in history] of at least 3.50 [at graduation] in the coursework required for the major and for honors; and (5) completion at the University of at least sixty semester hours of coursework counted toward the degree.

Rationale: To clarify our requirements and the application procedure. We eliminated special mention of History 350L because it is already listed as a requirement for the major. An oral exam is our standard practice

The requirements for graduation with honors are corrected to reflect long-standing practice. Only required history courses are included in the grade point average; any additional history courses the student has taken are not included.
