As an alternative to the Areas of Inquiry requirements, students may fulfill the Drake Curriculum by completing the requirements of the Honors Program Track listed below. Students may declare the Honors Program Track by completing a form available through the Honors Program office. Forms may be obtained from Assistant Director of the Honors Program, Charlene Skidmore (x2999; firstname.lastname@example.org) in Medbury 206/209. Completed forms will be shared with the appropriate Dean's office.
Students pursuing the Honors Program Track must still take a First Year Seminar and a Senior Capstone (note that the First Year Seminar, even if designated as Honors, may not be counted as one of the five required Honors courses indicated below). Note that students who later decide to drop the Honors Program Track must complete the Areas of Inquiry requirements (Honors courses already taken may be counted toward appropriate Areas of Inquiry with advisor approval). Please consult with your academic advisor before switching to the Honors Program Track. Completion of the Honors Program Track in the Drake Curriculum is not sufficient to fulfill the requirements of the Honors Program (leading to a designation of "University Honors" on a student's final transcript).
To complete the Honors Program, students must complete the Honors Program Track plus the following: successfully complete a Senior Honors Thesis and maintain an overall 3.5 GPA. Honors Program Track Requirements [downloadable Honors Track Form]:
