Honors in Integrated Science

Students eligible to pursue honors based on their overall performance in ISP courses will be so informed no later than fall quarter of senior year. Those who choose to pursue honors must then enroll with a faculty research adviser in at least 2 quarters of Undergraduate Research either in ISP (INTG_SCI 398-0) or an ISP-affiliated department (some of these credits may count toward the major; see the program director for details). At the beginning of May eligible students submit a senior thesis describing their research activities for consideration by the ISP committee.

Students whose theses and grades meet program criteria are recommended to the college for graduation with honors. For more information consult the program director and see Honors in the Major.
