Congratulations to this years’ Communication Department Honors Program students who presented their projects after participating in a rigorous two quarter long research project under the advisement of faculty. Each year in the fall, Communication majors apply to our Honors Program by selecting a faculty member as their adviser and submitting a proposal for a 20 week extensive research project. Students are selected for this program based on their academic performance and the merit of their research proposal. Across Winter and Spring quarters, Honors students take COMM 196A and 196B, a series of specialized seminar courses aimed at supporting this entry into Communication research. Successful completion of the honors program enables the student to graduate “With Highest Distinction,” “With High Distinction,” or “With Distinction,” depending on performance in the program.
This years’ Honors Program students displayed their poster presentations during a mini-conference with faculty, graduate students, and their fellow classmates in attendance. They were later honored by Chair Valerie Hartouni and Honors Program Adviser Elana Zilberg with their official graduation sashes at our annual end of the year departmental luncheon. Congratulations on all your hard work, class of 2019!
