The College of Sciences designates certain of its outstanding students as Honors students and provides the opportunity for advanced study under close faculty supervision.
Selection for honors designation is based on the student’s academic performance and recommendation by the faculty of the student’s major discipline.
To be eligible for the program, students must have a minimum overall grade point average of 3.0 at UTSA and a minimum grade point average of 3.0 in their major at UTSA. These minimum averages must be maintained for students to receive the approval of the College Honors Committee and the discipline faculty.
Students applying for College Honors are expected to enroll in the appropriate honors research course during their final two semesters. The completed research paper must be approved by the supervising faculty sponsor and another college faculty member. Students interested in this program should contact their faculty advisors for additional information.
