Honors Program in History
The Department of History offers honors courses by honors contract which are open to students who have distinguished themselves. Honors courses carry full credit toward the major or, for non-majors, full elective credit. Subject to the recommendation of the departmental honors committee, a student will be considered for graduation with “honors in history” upon successful completion of one three hour 3000 or 4000 level honors course or HIS 3510, the senior honors research course (HIS 4509), the senior honors thesis (HIS 4510), and a defense of the honor thesis. The three thesis hours can be substituted for HIS 4100 - Senior Seminar (3). A grade of “B” or better is required to receive honors credit in any honors course.
A thesis is required for the Master of Arts in History, but optional for the Master of Arts Public History concentration program.
