Honors Baccalaureate Degree

The Honors Baccalaureate Degree is a specialized, optional academic plan for students interested in research, graduate school, or graduating with a publication. The Honors Student writes a thesis paper, participates in a class to learn academic procedure for thesis production, and meets with a thesis board to practice defending a fully researched idea. The paper is then published by the school and added to the UL Lafayette Garland Dupre Library, and the student is recognized during the Honors Cording Ceremony. In addition to these accolades, the Baccalaureate degree is noted to be an excellent tool for graduates on resumes and curriculum vitaes.


Requirements are provided for further understanding of what is expected to receive a distinguished Honors degree.

UL Lafayette Honors Program 3rd Floor Fundraiser


Go Here to See Pictures from the 2016 Honors Soiree d'Excellence

In 2014 the Honors Program presented a night of enchantment and pride, the Honors Soiree' d'Excellence. The Honors Program was able to raise nearly $5,000 with the help and proceeds of many students, professors, and community leaders for the expansion of the 3rd Floor of Judice-Rickels Hall. In 2016, the Honors Program supplied another opportunity for individuals, family members, alumni, and friends of the program to gather and dine in honor of the program and in order to raise funds for the 3rd floor expansion. Provided is a brief video created by Honors Students explaining our continued need.

If you would like to help us continue to increase the expansion of our 3rd floor, please do not hesitate to donate.
