Honors Program

Students are eligible to do honors work within the Department of Spanish & Portuguese if they have completed at least two semesters of work at Berkeley with an overall grade-point average of 3.3 and a grade-point average of at least 3.6 in those courses taken within the major. Students must complete two honors courses, H195A (1.5 units) and H195B (1.5 units), in two successive semesters, and will write a thesis under the supervision of an appropriate departmental faculty member over the course of two successive semesters. A letter grade, reflecting progress, will be given after the first semester. H195A/B will not count toward the required upper-division work in the major.

Department Procedures: Before the semester in which you intend to begin the honors program, please contact the Undergraduate Advisor to verify eligibility for honors work and to discuss the process: spanua@berkeley.edu.
