The standards and expectations for honors-quality work are consistent with the ideal that students completing Honors in the Major are among the premier thinkers and writers at Georgetown.
In order to graduate with honors in Culture and Politics, a student must:
- Earn a cumulative grade point average of 3.33 and a grade point average of 3.67 in the major by the date of graduation.
- Submit, and gain approval for, a thesis proposal outlining the research project.
Successfully complete two semesters of tutorial work dedicated to the preparation of the thesis.
- Submit a senior thesis on an approved topic which is judged to be of honors quality by a faculty committee appointed for this purpose.
