Students interested in working for Honors need to select a departmental professor willing to supervise their Honors Thesis. This may be as early as the second semester of the sophomore year; ideally during the junior year; and in rare cases, as late as first semester of the senior year. Once the faculty advisor and the student have agreed upon an Honors topic, the student must then secure approval from the Departmental Honors Coordinator.
Individual departmental honors courses, such as Archaeology 492 and Archaeology 493, are available to allow the student to secure appropriate credit for the extra research involved in the Honors thesis.
Specific questions about eligibility or requirements should be addressed to the Departmental Honors Coordinator Professor David L. Browman, McMillan 118, firstname.lastname@example.org.
