Departmental Honors

Departmental Honors are much more than a way to build your resume. It forces you to challenge yourself particularly with regard to conducting research.

Students earning a B.S. in engineering physics may graduate with Departmental Honors by fulfilling the following requirements:

  • By the end of the candidate's final semester, achieve a minimum GPA of 3.5 in major courses taken in residence and elsewhere
  • Complete at least 1 credit hour of undergraduate research as represented by achievement of a grade of B or better in EPHX 503.
