History Honors Program

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Colleges and Departments

The honors track is open by departmental permission to history, history/ pre-law, and social studies education/history majors with a minimum 3.25 cumulative GPA and a 3.5 GPA in history courses. All students write an honors thesis, which is completed over two semesters under the direction of a department professor who specializes in the student’s area of interest. The thesis is approved by a thesis committee comprising the director and two other readers, one of whom may come from outside the History Department.

Honors students also take an honors (H) designated 300+ history class. All Honors history courses count toward the major.

Students interested in the History Honors Track should discuss this opportunity as early as possible with their advisors. Students may file a declaration of intent during the sophomore year; a formal application for admission must be made, normally early in the junior year. The program is particularly encouraged for students intending to seek admission to graduate or professional schools. Honors coursework is designated on university transcripts; students completing the departmental honors program are recognized at departmental commencement ceremonies.
