An honors program is available to students wishing to pursue an original and substantial research or creative project under direct supervision of a faculty adviser during their senior year.
Admission to the honors courses (MEJO 691H and 692H) requires:
- a GPA of 3.5 or better in the major and a 3.3 GPA overall
- commitment by a faculty member in the school to supervise the thesis
- approval of the director of the honors program, Associate Professor Barbara Friedman
Students must maintain a 3.3 overall GPA throughout the program. Those who complete and successfully defend their thesis at the end of the senior year will graduate with honors from the UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media; students who write outstanding theses will graduate with highest honors.
Access honors theses from previous years via the Park Library's catalog of honors theses.
