It is divided in two parts of 15 credits each. After the first part your progress and the quality of your work are assessed.

Successful completion of the full honors program is mentioned on your Bachelor’s diploma, you receive a letter of recommendation and obtain 30 additional credits. If you only complete the first part you get a certificate and 15 additional credits.
