Communication Honors Program

The School of Communication Honors Program provides an opportunity for outstanding communication majors to do intensive research in areas of special interest. Participation is limited to seniors who have obtained a minimum university and major 3.5 GPA. Students participating in the honors program enroll in COMM 4196  and COMM 4199  in consecutive semesters of the senior year. Students, after consultation with their advisor, are strongly advised to begin exploration and preliminary research of their honors topic during the second semester of their junior year in order to have sufficient time to complete the work. After extensive reading on a topic of the student’s choice, appropriate consultation with a faculty advisor, and approval of a research proposal, the student submits an honors thesis on a topic related to the readings and completes an oral examination covering both the reading assignments and the completed thesis. Students must receive a grade of B or better in COMM 4196  to continue with COMM 4199 .
