Jewish studies majors may apply for admission to the Jewish studies honors program at the end of their junior year. To be considered, students must have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 or better, and 3.4 or better in Jewish studies courses. The honors program offers qualified students the opportunity to pursue a research project in depth for the entire senior year under the supervision of a faculty adviser. Approval of the honors project is required for admission to the honors program. Honor students enroll in 01: 563:496 and 497 Jewish studies honors courses, and upon the completion of their honors project must pass an oral examination given by their adviser and a second reader.
