Within the requirements listed below, students must complete six upper division [300-400 level] HON-designated honors credits, and complete courses from at least three different disciplines within the social sciences and humanities. Either or both semesters of a Core Discovery sequence or a semester of an Integrated Seminar course (ISEM 101) may count toward the three discipline requirement.
- Three honors humanities credits;
- Three honors social science credits;
- Three honors science credits;
- Three credits in analytical and quantitative reasoning, satisfied by honors Math 315, or via 2012_HONORS_ELECTIVE AGREEMENT used in conjunction with Philosophy 202, or with agreement of professor (not lecturer) of Statistics 251 or Statistics 301;
- Additional elective credits, including up to three UHP volunteer service points, to total 27 credits/points: the 27 credits/points must include at least 20 credits with the HON course designation, with an average GPA of 3.0 or above in honors coursework completed, and an institutional cumulative GPA of 3.3
[Notes on Certificate: (1) overall cumulative GPA of 3.2 or above for those entering fall 2001-fall 2007; (2) the categories of humanities, social science, and science refer primarily but not exclusively to lower-division university general education core curriculum coursework--a student who may have completed university core requirements by having completed nonhonors courses may, by approval, substitute an appropriate honors seminar course to count towards the certificate--an honors history seminar on China, for example, would count toward the social science category but a history seminar on science might very well count toward the science category; an honors literature seminar counts toward humanities, or an honors seminar such as the Chem 400 "Energy Issues" course, which is on a topic in the sciences or technology, can be used for the science category. Credits transferred from study abroad or national exchange may , with the permission of the director, be applied to count toward the six upper-division honors credits; credits from the elective agreement are not typically applied toward the six upper-division credits, but the director will consider petitions to permit three elective credits to count toward the required six credits.]
