Department Honors

Selection for Honors designation is based on the student’s academic performance and recommendation by the Department Undergraduate Program Committee (UPC) in consultation with the faculty of the student’s major discipline. To be eligible for the designation, students must have a minimum overall grade point average of 3.0 at UTSA and a minimum grade point average of 3.5 in their major. To enroll in honors thesis courses and to graduate with the Honors designation, these minimum grade point averages must be maintained.

Students interested in this program should contact the Department Chair for additional information. Major honors can be obtained independent of, or in addition to, University Honors. In order to have departmental honors noted on the transcript, students must submit a letter of request for departmental honors to the Department Chair by Census Date of their last semester.
