Geography Honors

Tom Rickenbach (239-A Brewster Building; 252-328-1039;

The honors program in geography is designed for outstanding geography majors who wish additional challenge and recognition in pursuing scholarly work in a sub-field of geography. A student wishing to enter the honors program in geography must be a junior majoring in geography, have a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA, have a minimum 3.3 GPA in geography, and have completed a minimum of 21 s.h. in geography. Exceptions to these requirements may be made at the discretion of the departmental chairperson. A student in the honors program is encouraged to enroll, as part of her/his regular curriculum, in GEOG 4900  during the second semester of the junior year, and GEOG 4901  in the first semester of the senior year. Each honors student will carry out an extensive program of carefully supervised reading and research in one of the areas of geography, leading to the preparation of a senior honors thesis. To receive honors, a student must complete both GEOG 4900  and GEOG 4901  with at least a B (3.0).
