How To Apply

The English Honors Program enrolls 10-20 students each year through a rigorous admissions process. There is no minimum GPA, but most applicants have established a strong track record in the English Department, including in English 301, the gateway course for the major. They have earned the support of an English professor, and they have developed a clear sense of their goals for Honors and beyond. Applicants must be able to commit three full semesters (spring-fall-spring) to the completion of the program.

To apply, download the honors application and review the program description. You can contact Professor Jason Rudy (, the Director of English Honors, if you have any questions about the program or about the application process.

The application deadline to start in spring 2018 is November 17, 2017.
