Overview and Application

PowellStairsThe honors program is a three-term sequence (Asian 198A-198B-198C), taken in addition to requirements for the major that culminates in the submission of a 40- to 60-page thesis. In most circumstances courses 198A-198B-198C are taken in the senior year (Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarters), although students also have the option of taking course 198A in Spring Quarter of their junior year.

Students are expected to use an Asian language in their research, with the scope of language work to be determined in consultation with their faculty adviser. Highest honors, honors, or no honors are awarded as determined by the faculty thesis director and the departmental honors committee.



To qualify for graduation with departmental honors, students must:

(1) complete all requirements for the major

(2) have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 or better in upper division courses required for the major and an overall GPA of 3.0 or better

(3) complete Asian 198A-198B-198C.
