Please note it is possible to earn honors without doing a SIP in Religion, as long as the student meets the first two criteria.

Earning Honors in the SIP (Senior Individualized Project)

When the Senior Individualized Project is completed in the Department of Religion, any SIP may be submitted to the faculty of the department as a whole for consideration. Two or more faculty members must agree if a given SIP is worthy of honors for honors to be awarded. Students will be notified by their SIP advisors soon after the deadline for SIP grades in Winter Quarter of their grade on their SIP.
