Classical Studies Honors plans
Effective Date of Honors requirements for the major Fall 2006
The department offers Honors in each of the six majors. Interested students who have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.5 should contact their department 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 major. 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 major.
