Students in the Honors Program can choose to pursue various designations to earn upon graduation, including Honors in the Major. By completing Honors in the Major, you will:

  • engage in an enriched and extended learning experience;
  • develop as a scholar by choosing a rigorous preparation in the field of history;
  • be recognized in the Commencement Book, your transcript, and diploma.

History majors who are in the Honors Program will complete the required coursework and an honors thesis with the guidance of a faculty mentor of the history department. Students must apply and be accepted into the Honors in the Major course of study. Application should be made in their sophomore year.
