The Graduate degree AB magna cum laude is an honors degree. It is in the area of Arts and Sciences.
Not automatically, you need to earn the title, Cum Laude...Loosely translated CUM LAUDE means; with high honors.
Yes it is. I have a bachelor of arts degree in psychology, and graduate summa cum laude.
It can be, although it is rare at the graduate level.
This Latin phrase meaning to graduate with great praise, is above cum laude (with praise) and below summa cum laude (with the greatest praise).
While there may be some graduate schools that indicate honors, most do not.
It means you have achieved excellent academic performance. There are three common levels of distinction as follows from lowest to highest. * cum laude * magna cum laude * summa cum laude (highest honors)
At most colleges and universities, students can graduate with Latin honors. Cum laude, Summa cum laude, and Magna cum laude are the honors distinction.
3.5 overall GPA will qualify you as a Cum Laude honor graduate.
The GPA requirement to graduate Magna Cum Laude for an under-graduate degree from UNC at Chapel Hill is 3.75. Students must also have earned a total of 75 semester hours to earn Latin honors from the University.
Cum laude means 'with honor', magna cum laude is 'with high honor', and summa cum laude means 'with the greatest honor'. These designations are granted to every graduate who meets a required grade-point average, so several students in a class, or even an entire class, could graduate cum laude, magna cum laude, or summa cum laude. The valedictorian is the student with the highest academic rank in the class, so you would expect he would at least be a cum laude graduate. But if you have a class where no one has over a B average, there will still be a valedictorian but he will not be graduated with honors.
It depends on the specific college or university. However, many institutions start a cum laude honor at a 3.45. Once again, there is no standard and can only be understood by inquiring about the policies particular to the school.
