Distinction in the Field of Concentration
Students who receive a grade point average of 3.5 in major courses and who successfully complete and present in public a significant senior project, determined in consultation with the department, may graduate with distinction in the field of concentration.
Distinction in the Field of Individualized Majors
To receive distinction, a student completing an individualized major must earn a 3.5 average in all of the courses in the major program and complete a significant senior project, determined in consultation with the advisor. The project may be completed as part of a capstone course or culminating experience. The project must be approved for distinction by two faculty members representing different academic disciplines within the individualized major. Transfer students' qualification for honors is based on the grade point average achieved at Emmanuel College.
