Honors in the Major

The Art History Department offers honors in the major to students who wish to pursue an extended independent research project. The honors program is designed to encourage ambitious students capable of advanced, independent initiative to undertake original research at the beginning of their senior year, and to give them an idea of the work required in graduate school. Honors work also gives students the opportunity to work more closely with individual faculty members. Interested students should read over the requirements for Honors in Art History carefully before contacting the Departmental Honors Liaison, Dr. Lauren Weingarden.
