Opportunities for Students

Honors in History

To earn a B.A. degree with "honors in history", a student needs to complete a significant independent research project. 

Because we want to insure that students succeed with these projects, we require proposals/plans to be in place before the end of students' junior year, and we require students to have a GPA of 3.3 in history courses and 3.0 overall.   An honors project takes forethought and planning; it can be a capstone to a student's career, demonstrating the sort of excellence required in graduate schools.  If a student is contemplating graduate study, this could be a great asset.

Particular requirements for honors in history are outlined in the Department of History portion of the undergraduate catalog on the H&S website.  To see a model of a previous honors paper, contact the chair of the History department.
