Michigan State University professor emeritus Roger Hamlin was presented with a degree honoris causa, one of the highest honors that a European university can award an individual, from Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania, Romania says MSU Today.
Honoris causa is similar to an honorary doctoral degree in the U.S., except that it is offered less often and selection is based entirely on achievement and intellectual contribution.
