Generally, an honors program is not a major. You major in a discipline and, on top of the usual requirements, other requirements are added. These requirements generally expect you to supplement the normal requirements with research-oriented activities. Sample mechanisms to do this are a thesis requirement for graduation or an expectation that you identify courses for which you will conduct research above and beyond that expected of other students. This may involve you in a faculty member’s research or a supplemental research paper.
I have been working in the education industry since 2008. Our mission is to help each student find the right major and complete their degree.View all posts by Aaron →
