CHANGES IN REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ECONOMICS HONORS PROGRAM IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2004-2006

On page 245 of The Undergraduate Catalog, 2002-2004, in the DEPARTMENTAL HONORS PROGRAMS subsection of the LIBERAL ARTS HONORS PROGRAMS, PLAN I degree section, make the following changes:

Economics Honors Program

Majors who plan to seek special honors in economics must apply to the honors adviser for admission to the honors program before the first registration period for the first semester of their senior year. Students are encouraged to apply by the beginning of the first semester of their sophomore year, so that they will be eligible to take an honors section of Economics 420K. A University grade point average of at least 3.00 and a grade point average in economics of at least 3.50 are required for admission. The requirements for graduation with special honors are (1) at least thirty-one semester hours in economics; (2) Economics 378H and 379H with a grade of at least B in each; (3) a University grade point average of at least 3.00 and a grade point average of at least 3.50 in the coursework required for the major and for honors; and (4) completion at the University of at least sixty semester hours of coursework counted toward the degree. Before a student registers for Economics 378H, the student’s thesis proposal must be approved by the supervising instructor and the honors adviser.

RATIONALE: Including the requirements for registering for Economics 378H, an honors research course, more accurately reflects the requirements needed to participate in the Economics Honors Program.
