History Honors students celebrate end of year/thesis

Posted: February 6, 2006

The Honors Program in History aims to provide ambitious students the opportunity to do independent research in the form of a senior thesis. It is a three-semester program that begins with a small seminar on research and writing and continues with two semesters of independent research under the supervision of a faculty member and the completion of a 60-120 page thesis.

Since the program consists of one spring semester and two full semesters afterwards, students should apply during the early fall of their junior year. The Undergraduate Advising Office in Garrison Hall, Room 118 will have application materials and deadline information.

Those considering the honors program may consult with the Director or the Advising Office in their freshman or sophomore years for advice about preparation and scheduling. We encourage interested students to take upper division courses and seminars as soon their schedule and background permit.
