HIS 490 - History Honors Thesis


1 semester, 3 credits- Core Foundation/Proficiency: Writing II

The option of doing a history honors thesis is available to any senior history major with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.55 in history. Working one-on-one with a faculty member from history, students research and write a minimum forty-fifty page thesis on an historical topic of their choice. The final product must demonstrate research in primary sources, historical interpretation, critical analysis, accurate scholarly documentation, and (ideally) make an original contribution to the field in question. Proposals for the thesis are due by mid-May of the student’s junior year. Requires approval of the department.
