The student must register for the 3- or 6-credit PHILO 49400, which is taken in addition to and is not part of the 30 credits for the major. The student must write a substantial paper under the direction of a full-time faculty member. To receive departmental honors the completed paper must be submitted to a three-member committee who will judge whether it merits departmental honors. This committee will consist of the director of the student’s Honors Tutorial and two other full-time philosophy faculty members appointed by the director.
