Honors Program

The Department of History offers honors courses on all undergraduate levels 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 at least one semester of honors work in World civilization or American civilization, a junior honors seminar, a senior honors thesis, and an exam.

Those meeting these requirements with an "A" will be considered for graduation with "highest honors in history."

For more information look at the History Honors page under the Student tab.
