Graduating with Honors in Environmental Design
The Program in Environmental Design will confer the Latin honors designations of Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude and Summa Cum Laude on students who have completed an honors thesis that demonstrates independent learning, intellectual thought, and a scholarly contribution.

Projects worthy of the honors designation include design, research and theoretical work that demonstrates a high level of intellectual and/or creative ability and analytical skill; and that represents a contribution to the field of environmental design.

Completing an honors project allows students to investigate topics of interest, provides the opportunity to work closely with a faculty thesis chair, and creates a culminating intellectual experience that produces a meaningful project and learning experience
