Languages and Culture Studies, Honors Program


The Honors Program in the Department of Languages and Culture studies provides a unique opportunity to majors and minors in any of its language and culture disciplines to conduct field research through study abroad or applied internships.  After taking a course that prepares students to do and write up research, they have the opportunity to do experiential learning either on a study abroad or an internship, and later write up their findings.  Students have the opportunity to share their findings either through an honors project or thesis.  This is the highest distinction that the department bestows on its majors and minors; honors in Languages and Culture Studies is an excellent preparation for graduate school, and it is a great addition to student resumes.
