Honors Program
A student who satisfies the requirements of the College for admission to the Honors Program and is interested in doing independent work is strongly encouraged to participate in the departmental Honors Program. Students who successfully complete the Honors Program will have their degrees conferred with 'Honors' or 'High Honors' in mathematics; high honors is awarded only if the student submits a written thesis. Interested students should read carefully the section The Honors Program in Mathematics found in the Dartmouth ORC and consult with the Department Advisor to Mathematics Majors.
This program can be especially important to those who contemplate graduate work in mathematics or a related field.
