An Honors elective at Roanoke College may be chosen by any student, not just Honors students, who have at least a 3.2 cumulative grade point average at the time of applying or the approval of the Honors Program Director. The elective consists of a student project that is guided and evaluated by a committee of three qualified persons, two chosen from the department of principal interest and including the project advisor, plus one other evaluator. The committee may request other specialists to join in the final evaluation of the student’s work, which is to be the subject of an oral examination by the full committee. For additional details, consult the Honors Program Director. Honors in the major is not part of this Honors Elective option.
