Levels of Distinction
History majors can distinguish themselves in several ways, most notably by choosing to produce an honors thesis in their senior year or by demonstrating consistent excellence in all of their history classes, thus earning induction into the history honors society, Phi Alpha Theta. The History Department also offers a variety of prizes for exceptional work.
