Honors in Philosophy

The UNO Honors Program requires a minimum ACT composite score of 30 or a minimum SAT score of 1350 for admittance.  The grade point minimum for transfer and continuing students is 3.50. Philosophy majors are eligible to enter the department's honors program during the senior year. To graduate with honors, students must meet the following requirements:

  1. A cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.5 in philosophy courses, a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.50, and acceptable completion of a senior honors thesis (including six hours of credit for Philosophy 3001).

Students must arrange for a faculty member in the department to direct the thesis. After completion, the thesis must be defended orally before a committee composed of the thesis director, another member of the department, and a representative of the University Honors Program.
