To be considered for departmental honors, a student must:

  • be an MB&B major and be recommended to the department by a faculty member. The student is expected to have a B average (grade point average 85) in courses credited to the major.
  • submit a thesis based on laboratory research or library research, performed under the supervision of an MB&B faculty member.

Two readers (in addition to the research mentor) must be selected for review of Honors theses in MB&B. It is expected that these readers will be MB&B research faculty; any exception requires approval of the MB&B department chair.
