English Honors Program (EHP)

The English Honors Program offers capable students an opportunity to push their critical and creative boundaries. EHP students in literature, creative writing, professional writing, and education have access to the Department's Honors Room, participate in academic and cultural events on and off campus, enjoy English Honors advisement, work individually with a faculty mentor on an independent English Honors project in the fall term prior to graduation, and collaborate in colloquia and mini-conferences. Interested students who maintain a 3.2 College GPA and a 3.5 English GPA in at least two 300-level English courses may contact the EHP director for admission.
