Department Honors Program

The College of Health, Community and Policy awards Department Honors to certain outstanding students and provides the opportunity for advanced study under close faculty supervision.

The selection of students for donors designation is based on the student’s academic performance and recommendation by the faculty in the student’s major discipline.

To be eligible for the program, students must have a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 at UTSA and a minimum GPA of 3.5 in their major at UTSA. The minimum GPAs must be maintained for students to receive the approval of the Department Honors Committee and the discipline faculty.

Students applying for Department Honors are expected to enroll in the appropriate honors thesis course during their final two semesters. The completed thesis must be approved by the supervising faculty sponsor and another department faculty member.

Students interest in this program should contact their faculty advisor or The Honors College for additional information.
