College of Liberal and Fine Arts

Honors Program

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 faculty.

Students applying 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 member.

Students interested in this program should contact their faculty advisors or The Honors College for additional information.
