English Honors Program

Undergraduate English majors who qualify may join the English Honors Program, either in addition to or exclusive of enrollment in the Helen Hardin Honors College (University Honors). Students who complete the English Honors Program as well as the regular college requirements are recognized by having their degree presented "With Honors in English", a separate distinction from "University Honors".
