HISTORY 498, the Junior Honors Colloquium, provides a rigorous introduction to historical research in general and Honors thesis topics and research in particular. During this course, students must arrive at a topic and obtain an advisor for their senior Honors thesis. This course also provides intensive training in writing. Students are expected to achieve at least a B+ in this course in order to go on to the Senior Honors Colloquium.

HISTORY 498 is offered only in the winter term and is the foundation for work on the senior Honors thesis. Students who cannot fit this course into their schedules will generally not be admitted to the program (with exceptions for study abroad). Admitted juniors studying abroad during the winter term will have HISTORY 498 waived, but will be expected to consult with the Honors advisor about finding an advisor and writing a prospectus while they are away. They will also need to complete HISTORY 496 or 497 in its place.
