The Honors Program in history offers the opportunity for recognition of distinguished achievement in historical research and writing.
Qualified students apply to enter the Honors Program. Covering the two semesters of the senior year, the program provides qualified majors with training both in the analysis and criticism of historical scholarship and the intellectual experience for interested students regardless of whether they plan to pursue graduate work in history. Proposals are due in mid-April and should be prepared in consultation with department faculty.
