Who and What?

Seniors and juniors who qualify as candidates for Departmental Honors must complete a six-credit Departmental Honors project. A student who fulfills requirements for Departmental Honors will be acknowledged as having done so upon graduation.

  • Shelby Grace Johnson, “Child Soldiers: Failures of the Global North.” (Supervisor: Dr. Herb Berg)
  • Gongtao Sun, “China’s Minority Policy (1933-2013): A Core-Periphery Analysis.” (Supervisor: Dr. Paige Tan)

A student who previously has not participated in the honors program may qualify as a candidate for Departmental Honors in International Studies based on the student's grade-point average. Students with at least 74 semester hours credit who have a grade point average of 3.20 or better on all college work attempted, who have completed at least 30 semester hours of work with a 3.20 or better grade point average at UNCW, and who are recommended by the director of International Studies are eligible to enroll in INT 499.

The Departmental Honors project culminates in independent study under the supervision of a faculty member in International Studies. This independent study must be completed in two three-credit hour semesters or three two-credit hour semesters. The results of the honors work are summarized in a paper and presented orally before an examining committee.
