English Honors Program Application Deadline


English Honors Applications will be due at 5pm on Friday, October 18, 2013.  See message below from the Honors Program Director, Jennifer Wenzel.



Dear Concentrators,

I'd like to remind you of the upcoming deadline for applying to the English department Honors program, next Friday October 18 .
The Honors program offers wonderful opportunities for students with an interest in pursuing advanced literary study and independent work. Honors students work closely with some of the department's most rigorous faculty in exciting courses and in year-long thesis projects of their own design. The two main aspects of the Honors program are 1) the honors curriculum (courses in addition to regular concentration requirements) that includes courses in literary theory and advanced honors seminars on special topics and 2) the thesis writing senior year, where students work closely with fellow thesis writers, a faculty advisor expert in the topic of their thesis, and the director of the honors program to write a 40-60pp. researched argument about a question they are passionate about.
The best time to apply to the Honors program is winter of the sophomore year, or fall of the junior year. Interested sophomores might also consider enrolling in Honors courses for the upcoming Winter term, before they apply.
Should you have questions, please don't hesitate to email me at jawenzel@umich.edu.
