Honors Options for Italian Courses

Schreyers Honors students who wish to receive Honors Option credit for advanced Italian courses (usually permitted only for 300- and 400-level courses taught by tenure-line Italian faculty) should speak first with the Schreyers Honors adviser in Italian, Sherry Roush, who will discuss with the student an appropriate honors project to propose to the course instructor. The student should then approach the course instructor to propose Honors Option credit. Signatures from both the course instructor and Schreyers Honors advisor in Italian are necessary for Honors Option credit in Italian courses.

The Honors Thesis in Italian

Who can write an honors thesis in our department?

In general students who wish to write an honors thesis in Spanish or Italian must have a major in the department. Under exceptional circumstances non-majors may be allowed to write an honors thesis in Spanish or Italian. Non-majors who wish to write an honors thesis should send a petition to the departmental honors adviser, indicating their qualifications for writing the thesis and a justification for presenting an honors thesis in Spanish or Italian. These materials must be submitted electronically to the departmental honors adviser. Materials must be submitted even if a potential faculty thesis supervisor has been contacted. Contact Schreyers Honors adviser in Italian, Sherry Roush for more information.
