Computer Science Honors Programs
General Honors Requirements
The department offers three honors programs: Computer Science, Computer Science/Mathematics, and Economics/Computer Science. The honors degree will be awarded to students with outstanding performance in any one of these programs. To be eligible for this distinction students must:
 Complete all college BA requirements including at least 64 points for of graded work in the College of Arts & Science.
 Complete all of the course requirements for any one of the programs.
 Maintain a grade point average of 3.65 or better in the major sequence (including honors requirements) AND maintain a general grade point average of 3.65 or better.
 Request admission to the honors program by completing the Honors Admission Request Form .
 Meet with the computer science Program Administrator and Director of Undergraduate Studies to discuss the program requirements once you have been admitted.
 Meet with your mentor at least twice during the academic year, once in October and once in March, prior to registering for the following semester.
 Students are required to submit a copy of their completed thesis to their Faculty Advisor, as well as to the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Marsha Berger  berger@cims.nyu.edu .
