The Program in International and Comparative Studies (PICS) offers an Honors Plan for International Studies majors with an overall GPA of 3.4 and with a grade of B+ or better in INTLSTD 101. Students elect INTLSTD 498 in the Fall and INTLSTD 499 in the Winter (the senior Honors proseminars) during their senior year and write a major research paper under the direction of a faculty advisor and the instructor of INTLSTD 498-499.
For students interested in the PICS Honors Plan, Dr. Anthony Marcum will host a virtual informational meeting on Tuesday, November 10, 2020 from 5:30-6:30 PM EST. This meeting is for any rising senior interested in enrolling in the Honors Plan for the 2021-2022 academic year and graduating with Honors (thus writing an Honors thesis) in Winter 2022.
