Completion of the LSJ minor is monitored by the student’s major department adviser, but the LSJ adviser can certainly be contacted in case of problems or confusions.

LSJ 310 and LSJ 499 are courses used for students who have arranged an independent paper or research project with an LSJ faculty member. In order to be registered for either of these classes, the student will have to get the signature of the faculty person who will be mentoring/administering the research project for the student. This class is for LSJ major’s only and is generally not numerically graded. Students can meet with the LSJ adviser to discuss this possibility before contacting a faculty person to supervise the project.
LSJ majors who have and maintain a gpa of 3.5 or higher can be considered for departmental honors in LSJ. LSJ offers both a group and an individual option for earning Honors. Instructions for applying to the group option are emailed to all majors every Spring. If you are interested in the individual option, follow the instructions on this application. Both the individual and group Honors options consist of a two quarter Honors Thesis course, worth 10 graded credits. Interested students should meet with the LSJ adviser well in advance of the quarter in which they would like to add the first quarter of the Honors Thesis. This form must be turned in to the LSJ adviser no later than the first Friday of the quarter in which the student intends to start the Honors Thesis. More information about LSJ Honors can be found under the “Option for Honors in LSJ” tab of the webpage.
