Undergraduate Honors Program

Overview

Undergraduate majors with exceptional academic records have the opportunity to participate in the Speech & Hearing Sciences Department (SPHSC) Honors Program. The SPHSC Honors Program is a year-long experience for students who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly potential and who wish to further their studies in this field through independent research activities, under the mentorship of a faculty advisor.

During this experience, students complete at least six (6) Undergraduate Honors Research credits (SPHSC 498), write an Honors thesis, and present their research findings at the Department's Spring Honor’s Colloquium. Those who successfully complete the SPHSC Honors Program will receive a Bachelor of Science degree "With Honors in Speech and Hearing Sciences".
