Departmental Honors in German
To qualify for the B.A. in Germanic Languages & Literatures with Honors, the student must have a minimum grade point average of 3.25 overall and 3.5 in German at graduation. Students must complete an honors research project during their final year at KU. Topics are selected in consultation with the faculty project advisor from Germanic Languages & Literatures. Applications for departmental honors must be submitted by the end of the first week of classes, normally during the fall of senior year. Upon acceptance of an application, the student registers for the GERM 598-GERM 599 sequence. The student presents the completed research project to the project advisor and two other members of the Departmental Honors Committee about one month before concluding his or her final semester at KU. A grade of B or higher in GERM 598 and 599 is required for departmental honors. GERM 598 and 599 may not be used to satisfy other course requirements.
