Advising Requirement:

Advising is mandatory for all majors in this degree program. Consult your undergraduate adviser for specific information.

Honors in the Major

Honors in the Major is a program of independent work in your major. It involves 6 units of honors course work completed over two semesters.

Your Honors work will be recognized at your graduation, on your permanent transcripts, and on your diploma. It is often accompanied by letters of commendation from your mentor in the department or the department chair. Most importantly, however, the Honors in the Major program allows you to work closely with a faculty mentor in your area of interest on an original performance or research project. This year-long collaboration allows you to work in your field at a professional level and culminates in a public presentation of your work. Students sometimes take their projects beyond the university for submission in professional journals, presentation at conferences, or competition in shows; such experience is valuable for graduate school and later professional life.

Some common features of Honors in the Major program are

1. You must take 6 units of Honors in the Major course work. At least 3 of these 6 units are independent study (499H) as specified by your department. You must complete each class with a minimum grade of B. 2. You must have completed 9 units of upper-division course work or 21 overall units in your major before you can be admitted to Honors in the Major. Check the requirements carefully, as there may be specific courses that must be included in these units. 3. Your cumulative GPA should be at least 3.5 or within the top 5 percent of majors in your department. 4. Your GPA in your major should be at least 3.5 or within the top 5 percent of majors in your department. 5. Most students apply for or are invited to participate in Honors in the Major during the second semester of their junior year. Then they complete the 6 units of course work over the two semesters of their senior year. 6. Your honors work culminates with a public presentation of your Honors project.

While Honors in the Major is part of the Honors Program, each department administers its own program. Please contact your major department or major adviser for further information.

INTERNSHIP POLICY

With the approval of the appropriate academic adviser, it is possible to enroll for academic credit in an internship course which is related to your program of study in the Social Sciences. Internships are permitted or required in about half of the Social Science Depth fields, all of the minors described below, and in the Social Science MA program. In some cases, internships may be repeated for credit more than once.

The general guidelines for internships in the undergraduate and graduate Social Science and Special Programs includes appropriate class standing, the completion of an appropriate amount of program course work prior to the internship, working approximately 135 hours for each 3 units of credit, the submission of a written proposal to the faculty supervisor describing the job duties and educational objectives associated with the internship, demonstration that the host agency/location is willing to accept the intern and that the duties are acceptable to them, have submitted to the faculty supervisor an evaluation of the intern's work by the agency/location supervisor, and submit to the faculty supervisor a paper of adequate length which describes the character of the internship and its relationship to the academic program within which the student is working. Graduate internships require graduate standing, the demonstration that the quality of experience merits graduate credit, and demonstration that the internship fits into the overall graduate program.
