Our honors program offers talented students the intellectual challenge of independent research on any aspect of the ancient world—literature, art, architecture, history, or culture. Through this program, the Department of Classical Studies recognizes the academic achievements of its outstanding students and gives them the opportunity to excel.
Students wishing to join the honors program must do the following:
- Maintain a GPA of 3.3 overall and 3.5 in the major
- Research and complete an honors thesis or equivalent project under the close supervision of a committee of two faculty members during the senior year
We have developed comprehensive guidelines for completion of your honors thesis. Please review these carefully and contact your advisor with questions.
