Departmental Distinction

A religious studies major with minimum overall GPA of 3.00 and a 3.50 GPA in the major by the middle of the junior year may apply for the degree “with departmental distinction.” Candidates for distinction must enroll in a directed research tutorial in the fall term of their senior year followed by an independent studies course in the spring term for which they will write a senior thesis. Only the directed research tutorial may be used to fulfill the 30 term hour requirement for the major.
