The College of Liberal
and Fine Arts awards Department Honors to certain of its outstanding students
and provides the opportunity for advanced study under close faculty supervision.
Selection of students
for honors designation is based on the student's academic performance and
recommendation by the faculty in the student's major discipline.
To be eligible for
the program, students must have a minimum overall grade-point average of
3.0 at UTSA and a minimum grade-point average of 3.5 in their major at
UTSA. The minimum grade-point averages must be maintained for students
to receive the approval of the Department Honors Committee and the discipline
for Department Honors are expected to enroll in the appropriate honors
thesis course during their final two semesters. The completed thesis must
be approved by the supervising faculty sponsor and another Department faculty
in this program should contact their faculty advisors for additional information.
