1 The Honors Program is under review, and these terms may be modified for the Academic Year. HONORS PROGRAMS In 1957 the faculty of the University of Miami established the General Honors Program to provide an academically challenging course of study for outstanding students. The program was later expanded by the addition of departmental honors. Students who satisfactorily complete the requirements for general and/or departmental honors are graduated with General Honors and/or Departmental Honors; the award is noted on the graduates diploma and official transcript. GENERAL HONORS PROGRAM Over the past four decades since its foundation, the General Honors Program has grown. The program coordinates courses and sections each semester at the introductory through advanced levels, in a wide variety of fields in all colleges and schools of the University. In general, Honors courses are small classes taught as seminars with emphasis on interactive learning and discussion. ADMISSION TO GENERAL HONORS The University of Miami takes the initiative to invite the top 10% of the entering freshman class to join the General Honors Program. On receipt of an invitation, there is no further action required on the part of the student. RETENTION AND REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION WITH GENERAL HONORS To remain in the General Honors Program a student must maintain an overall academic average of and complete at least two Honors courses (six credits) per academic year. To graduate with General Honors, a student must satisfy at least 24 credits in General Honors courses with a grade of B or better and have an overall grade point average of Twelve of the 24 credits must be in courses at the 200 level or above. No more than 12 credits in the student s major may be counted toward the 24 credits in General Honors. WITHDRAWAL, DISMISSAL, AND REINSTATEMENT TO GENERAL HONORS Students may withdraw from the program at any time at their discretion. They should notify the Honors Office in writing of their intention to withdraw. Honors students grade point averages and general performance are reviewed each academic year. Any student who fails to maintain the required cumulative grade point average or fails to take the required number of Honors credits will be excused from the program. Students may re-enter the program when their grade point average reaches 3.500; however, students must inform the Honors Office of the improved average and of their interest in re-entering the program.

2 DEPARTMENTAL HONORS PROGRAM Among the departments offering approved programs for honors study at the junior-senior level for both majors and elective students are American studies, art and art history, biochemistry and molecular biology, biology, business administration, chemistry, computer science, engineering, English, finance, French, German, history, international finance and marketing, international studies, Judaic Studies, marine science, mathematics, meteorology, microbiology and immunology, philosophy, political science, psychology, religious studies, sociology, Spanish, and women s and gender studies. Admission into the program is by invitation, but any student who believes himself or herself qualified may apply to the Chairman or the Departmental Honors Advisor of the major department, preferably during the sophomore or early junior year. Upon successful completion of the required program and with approval by the faculty of the department, the notation Departmental Honors in is included in the candidate s diploma and transcript. Departmental are designed primarily to provide an opportunity for the superior student to intensify and deepen his or her knowledge of the major, to permit closer associations with professors in the student s area of concentration, and to prepare the student for research, thesis preparation, and other work at the graduate level in the major areas. Minimal requirements for graduation with Departmental Honors are: 1. an over-all average of at least 3.300; 2. six credit hours or more in independent study, senior thesis, or designated advanced or special honors courses specified by the department, with grades of at least B; 3. an average in the major of at least Some departments specify additional requirements; the prospective Departmental Honors student should confer with the Honors Advisor within the department about specific requirements. The College of Engineering offers a professionally oriented honors program which is described in their respective listing elsewhere in the Bulletin. FOOTE FELLOWS PROGRAM The Foote Fellows program, established in honor of former University of Miami President, Edward T.
