Students who achieve high GPAs in their philosophy courses will be recognized with departmental honors upon graduation, in the graduation program and in a letter issued by the department. We determine honors as follows:
At least 3.5 GPA in philosophy classes: Honors in Philosophy
At least 3.7 GPA in philosophy classes: High Honors in Philosophy
At least 3.85 GPA in philosophy classes: Highest Honors in Philosophy
Departmental awards are given at the time of graduation, and are recognized in the graduation program and in a letter issued by the department. Awards typically come with monetary grants of between $100 and $500. Criteria for awards vary from award to award. In recent years, awards granted have included the Brittain Prize, the Cohen Prize, the Dunat Award, the Ketchum Prize, the Sperling Award, the Tamny Award, and the Ward Medal.
