Choose your honors pathway  

English majors enrolled in the Commonwealth Honors College may choose from 2 honors pathways, or tracks:

Begin planning early

CHC English majors should begin deciding which track they would like to pursue during spring registration of their sophomore year. This timing is important (particularly if you plan to go abroad) so that you can choose courses that might support your honors thesis or project and can develop relationships with faculty who may eventually oversee that work.

To this end, you should meet with the Honors Program Director to explore which track is the best fit for you.
