Honors Program


The ITS Honors Program is designed for qualified, self-motivated international studies majors. Through special course distribution and credit hours requirements, as well as a directed honors thesis, students are prepared for in-depth ITS research and related graduate or professional opportunities.


Students must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • 3.0 cumulative GPA at UAB, 3.3 GPA in ITS (and maintenance of these minima)
  • junior standing
  • declaration of ITS as student’s major
  • letter of Intent to the Director. The Director approves admission into the program in consultation with the ITS faculty.
