Students can easily find themselves confused between the Honors options at Carolina. There are basically two options for being involved in Honors programs:
The UNC Honors program offers students specific courses. Honors Carolina students must maintain a 3.2 GPA (cumulative) and complete two Honors courses each academic year to remain in good standing. For more details, please go to http://honorscarolina.unc.edu/home/ and learn about the application process and relevant courses. You will find biology-specific Honors courses under the UNC Honors Program Courses in Biology tab on the left-side navigation menu.
Participating in the Biology Honors program (BIOL 691H) will allow you to graduate with Honors or Highest Honors in the Biology major, regardless of whether you are part of the UNC Honors Program. Candidates for BIOL 691H must fill out an application form and get approval from the department honors advisor, Dr John Bruno. Students must have taken at least 3 hours of BIOL 395 and have a CUM GPA of 3.2 or higher and a GPA of 3.4 or higher in BIOL classes (not including BIOL 101/101L or 395/495). Upon approval, the student will be registered by the department. Applications for BIOL 691H are due by the first day of classes. Pick up applications in 213 Coker Hall. Note that BIOL 691H is not offered in Summer School.
