Classical Studies Honors Concentration

Effective Date of Honors concentration requirements Fall 2006

The department offers Honors in each of the six concentrations. Interested students who have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.5 should contact their concentration advisor to discuss an Honors thesis no later than the winter term of their junior year at the latest.

It is the student's responsibility to find a suitable faculty advisor to oversee the thesis project. This project and its components are to be decided collectively by the student and the advisor at the end of the junior year. We encourage students to think creatively about the approach to their research and thesis project. Thesis advisors must sign off on a student's thesis project proposal.

Honors students may receive six credits during their senior year for research culminating in a thesis project by registering for one of the following courses: CLARCH 495, CLCIV 495, GREEK 495 or LATIN 495 depending on the concentration. At the end of the thesis project, the candidate must offer an oral defense of this work to a committee comprised of the thesis advisor and another faculty member, and present their research findings at the Classical Studies Honors Symposium.

Additional requirements for Honors candidates are specified with each concentration below.
