There are three ways in which you can participate in honors work at JMU:

  • As an Honors Scholar
  • Through subject-area honors
  • Through a senior honors capstone event

Honors Scholars participate in four years of honors study, including a six-hour senior honors project. Designation as an Honor's Scholar is by invitation and application during the senior year of high school. Being an Honors Scholar is the most comprehensive and demanding level of participation in honors work at JMU. Additional information is available from the Honors College.

All students who major in Computer Science and graduate With Distinction are required to use the "honors capstone event" to make a contribution to either the field/discipline of computer science or to make a contribution to society at large using computational thinking. 

Please contact your advisor if you are interested in participating in the computer science honors program.
