Dean of HSS Book Prize

A Program Book Prize is awarded annually to one student per program who has demonstrated academic excellence in their declared major, and completed at least six semesters with a minimum of at least 90 credit hours. In addition to academic standing, the recipient’s contributions to the community and vitality of their department may also be considered.  

To be eligible for this prize, the student must have demonstrated academic excellence in his/her declared major. Each department in the faculty automatically forwards its nominations to the Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences office, and the prizes are presented at the annual Dean's List award ceremony.
