The Honors Program

The honors program is an opportunity for upper-class midshipmen to carry out a major research project under the direct supervision of a faculty member.  As an honors candidate, midshipmen are responsible to their faculty advisor who guides the design, research, and analysis of the subject of interest.  The student's major codes switches from 'ENM' to 'ENMH' or 'EOE' to 'EOEH,' and their diploma indicates a Bachelor of Science "with Honors."
