Dean Corvino announces changes to University Honors Program
Irvin D. Reid Honors College Dean John Corvino announced this week, in an email sent to Honors students, two significant changes to the University Honors Program - the reduction of the number of required credit hours needed for completion and the expansion of the HON 3000 requirement.
Details of the changes are below.
Honors Advisors will be working through the summer to update students' DegreeWorks to reflect this credit-hour requirement change. If students have any questions, or they do not see this change reflected in their DegreeWorks by the start of Fall 2019, please email email@example.com for assistance.
If students have already completed their HON 3000 with a service learning class, that credit will still count towards graduation. If students have completed other Field Learning courses or experiences that clearly fall within the new parameters, they may petition (firstname.lastname@example.org) to have those counted toward the Honors 3000 requirement. Generally, only experiences that were part of an approved WSU class or program will qualify.
For students still looking to complete their requirement, visit https://honors.wayne.edu/students/graduating to see the parameters for your range of options: either service learning, undergraduate research, study abroad, or an internship/co-op/practicum. Note that there are explicit guidelines for each of these options: not just any class or related experience will count.
Students are strongly urged to consult with Honors Advisors when preparing to satisfy their HON 3000 requirement.
