HISTORY HONORS PROGRAM

A student desiring to enter the honors program in history must be a second semester junior majoring in history; possess a minimum cumulative and major GPA of 3.0; and have a minimum of 20 s.h. in history (exceptions may

be made at the discretion of the department chair). Furthermore, a student engaged in the history honors program shall be enrolled as a part of the regular curriculum in HIST 4550 and 4551, starting the sequence the spring semester of the junior year and concluding at the end of the first semester of the senior year.  Upon completion of the two courses, the student will receive 6 s.h. credit in advanced history.

Each honors scholar will carry out an extensive program of carefully supervised reading and research in one of nine areas of history: Colonial America; Nineteenth-Century America; Twentieth-Century America; Ancient and Medieval; Europe, 1500‑1815; Europe, 1815 to Present; Asia; Latin America; Africa.

A history honors award is given annually to the history honors program student who completes and defends the most outstanding honors paper.

DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY

George Bailey, Chairperson, A‑327 Brewster Building

BA IN PHILOSOPHY

Minimum degree requirement is 126 s.h. of credit as follows:

1. General education (See Section 6, Undergraduate Studies, Requirements for Baccalaureate Degree Programs.)  42 s.h.

2. Foreign language through level 1004...................................... 12 s.h.

3. Core..................................................................... 30 s.h.

Choose a minimum of 12 s.h. of PHIL above 2999
The department encourages majors to enroll in junior‑senior courses as soon as they are eligible

4. Minor and electives to complete requirements for graduation.

PHILOSOPHY MINOR

The philosophy minor requires 24 s.h. credit.  While there are no required courses, a minimum of 9 s.h. of the 24 s.h. must be above PHIL 2999.

PHILOSOPHY HONORS PROGRAM 

The purpose of junior‑senior honors in philosophy is to encourage independent research and scholarship and to give students an opportunity to better prepare themselves for graduate study. Under the direction of one member of the department, a student enrolled in this program (PHIL 3550, 4550) carries on studies (as based on a reading list), prepares for a comprehensive examination at the end of the junior year, and writes a thesis during the first semester of the senior year. Students who have an interest in this program should come to the departmental office in A‑327 Brewster Building for details.
