Students with a grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.5 overall and 3.7 in the major should consider participating in the ORMS honors program. To graduate with honors, a student must find a faculty sponsor appropriate for an original research project that he or she wishes to do and enroll in two semesters (6 units) of the honors thesis course.
Alternatively, a student may take two approved graduate courses in Operations Research or a related field, and achieve at least an A- in each course. The student must also maintain a minimum 3.5 overall GPA and 3.7 in the major.
Operations Research and Management Science does not offer a minor program.
