This is an example of ONE Possible course of study but is not the only course of study that could be used to complete graduation/degree requirements in 4 years. It is essential that Honors students meet with their adviser at least once per semester to determine the best selection of courses. A student may receive a B.A. or B.S. in Honors depending on their second major and/or the field of concentration of the majority of their courses. Students may enter the Honors Program after their first or second semester, transfer students are welcome in the program. These students should visit with an Honors adviser to plan an individualized course of study. Every student must fulfill all University, Departmental, and Essential Studies requirements. Essential Studies requirements are found at http://und.edu/academics/essential-studies/requirements.cfm
