Environmental studies students work on chemistry class project.

You can graduate with honors in environmental studies if you complete the following two requirements:

  1. Your average GPA should be 3.5. What counts towards your average? All courses for your environmental studies major. These include the required courses, your concentration courses, and any course used to satisfy your capstone requirement. (Courses are not required to satisfy the capstone requirement, but you may take courses as part of your capstone experience.)
  2. Your capstone project should demonstrate your intellectual depth and rigor in order to merit an honors designation in environmental studies. Your honors capstone will be evaluated by your capstone committee and you should discuss your interest in achieving an honors capstone with your committee during the proposal stage of your captstone.
  3. Your honors capstone project begins with a proposal (use this template [PDF]) that must be acceptable to your capstone chair and committee members prior to the start of your project.
