The University Honors Program is located in Library and Academic Technology Services, Room 309. Students who are interested should telephone the Director, Professor Albie Burke, or Duan Jackson at (562) 985-4706 to request a brochure and an application.
The University Honors Program requires no extra course work and includes small discussion classes with students who share similar interests and abilities; personalized academic advisement and guidance each semester; opportunities for a distinguished undergraduate record as one of fewer than 400 honors students on campus; professors' profiles of each student's individual performance placed in a file for job and graduate school applications; and the opportunity to do an undergraduate thesis project in the area of the student's major. It is possible to graduate in four years and to be recognized at graduation as having fulfilled all the requirements of the Honors Program.
Students with SAT scores of 1600 or above and a high school GPA of 3.3 or above, or with a college GPA of 3.2 or above who still need 21 units of General Education are eligible. Interested students are urged to apply for an interview with the Director of the program.
