An honors degree and an honors degree with distinction are the University of Delaware's most comprehensive and enriching undergraduate degree experiences. An honors degree recognizes a student's excellent performance in honors coursework in and outside of their primary major. The honors degree with distinction recognizes a student's completion of the research requirements for the degree with distinction in addition to the successful pursuit of honors coursework throughout the degree program.
For more information on the General Honors Award, Honors Degree, and Honors Degree with Distinction see this document and explore the University of Delaware Honors Program website.
We encourage all our students, but especially honors students to undertake undergraduate research. There are summer scholarships available for research toward a thesis in conjunction with a faculty member. The deadline for a proposal is March 1st. See the undergraduate research program's website for more details.
