Senior Thesis Option

Students choosing this two-semester sequence (History 681-682) write a substantial research paper on a topic of their choice in consultation with a faculty thesis advisor. The prerequisites for History 681 are the same as for History 600. Students must also receive approval from the faculty thesis advisor and department chair prior to enrolling.

History majors with a GPA of 3.333 or higher in all history credits attempted may, with the consent of the faculty thesis advisor and the department chair, take the sequence in lieu of History 600 to satisfy (in part) major requirements and the L&S research course requirement.
