Disciplinary Honors

The Disciplinary Honors Program allows students to do Honors work in their majors or in upper-division interdisciplinary studies. Through Disciplinary Honors, students have the opportunity to study topics in depth and to do advanced research under the supervision of a faculty member, thus giving themselves a competitive advantage when applying for graduate school or beginning a career. In order to participate in and take Disciplinary Honors courses, students must have a 3.30 grade point average at the time of registration and meet all other course prerequisites.

Requirements

  • UNCG GPA of 3.30 or higher at graduation
