Honors Track

The Honors Track in Classics challenges students to deepen their understanding of classical language, literature, and civilization by undertaking a significant research project.

Eligibility Requirements

To receive honors, a student must:

1. Complete all requirements for the major.

2. Maintain a GPA of at least 3.65 in the major.

3. Complete the Honors Seminar (normally in the senior year).

4. Receive a grade of A- or higher for a 5,000-6,000 word honors thesis.

Honors students work closely with a member of the Classics faculty, who guides their research project.

If you are interested in pursuing any one of these options, contact the Classics Director of Undergraduate Studies.

Note: The 5,000 word requirement refers to the word count of the main body of the text, not including footnotes or appendices.
