UT Tyler Honors Program
Honors Associate Program
The Honors Associate Program is a two year commitment to the Honors Program that focuses on expanding major-specific coursework and offers associates the opportunity to pursue individual research. In the associate's first year, the student will contract with faculty members in upper division courses within their major to complete additional work. Contracts may include an additional project, additional readings, additional meetings with a faculty member, additional research time in the faculty member's lab, etc. In the associate's second year, the student will investigate a research question in the fall and spring semesters, and compose either a paper for submission to an undergraduate research journal or a poster for presentation at an undergraduate research conference.

While the Honors Committee will review all completed applications, successful candidates typically have a cumulative GPA of at least a 3.0 or higher.
