Departmental honors are decided by a vote of the faculty just prior to Commencement each year. The following guidelines are used to evaluate candidates:
- Students must achieve a grade point average of at least a 3.67 in all courses that count toward the major and concentration at the 200-level and above, including any statistics course substituted for EC 206.
- Students must have demonstrated to the department faculty superior grasp of economic theory and its applications.
- Once requirements for the major and concentration have been met, students may elect to take additional courses without penalizing eligibility for honors.
