Students wishing to qualify for departmental honors in the computer science major must:
- Complete all departmental requirements for the computer science major and have a GPA of 3.5 or higher for all course work (MC and CS) taken in the department, together with a course in another discipline that has substantial computer science content if taken as an elective with permission of the department;
- Have a GPA of 3.0 for all course work taken at Skidmore;
- File with the department, by the end of the official add-drop period of the spring semester of the senior year, a declaration of intention to qualify for honors; and
- Submit an honors thesis to be read by a review committee, and give an oral presentation of the thesis to the department. The review committee will evaluate the thesis to determine if it is of the exceptional quality that merits honors; the committee's recommendation will be submitted to the department for final adjudication.
