Opportunities for Students

The following opportunities outside of the classroom add substantially to the experience of being a student in the history department.

Honors in History

An ambitious project in a student's senior year earns "honors" on a student's diploma.  This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in an intensive project; particularly helpful for those interested in graduate study.

Phi Alpha Theta

Students at Ithaca College can join our chapter of the history honors society.


Available both in Ithaca and off site, these can be for credit or for the experience in public history.

Presentations of Student Work

Each Spring brings several opportunities for experience in public speaking and presenting student work in a variety of venues: on campus, in a regional conference, and more.

Overseas/Off Site Study

A great opportunity to expand the undergraduate experience, off-site study also offers history courses that can count toward our degrees. 

Funding Student Projects

Both the H&S Dean's office and the IC Provost's office may have opportunities to fund particular student projects, such as internships, collaborative work with faculty, and travel to archives or to a conference.
