Some departments offer a dual degree plan that entails completing the Bachelors degree with a Masters degree in five (5) years. Dual degree programs offer you the opportunity to accelerate your educational plan. The Honors Thesis will serve you well as you make the transition from undergraduate to graduate study; the Thesis option may even inspire your Master thesis or graduate degree plan. If you are planning to enroll in a dual degree program, it is important to consult with both your undergraduate (major and Honors) and graduate degree plan advisers on the appropriate course of study. Graduate courses may count toward the fulfillment of Honors credit hour requirements. An Honors Degree will be awarded only for the Bachelors degree.
