Honors in Classical Studies and Ancient History

Rewarding research

A student majoring in Classical Studies or Ancient History will be considered for Honors in the major on the basis of a Senior Research Paper:

  • This research project will address a well-defined topic, question, problem, text, object, or other body of materials within the field of Classical Studies or Ancient History.
  • A list of recent Senior Research Papers is available here.
  • Proposals are due by April 15 of the junior year, and the final paper is due December 15 in the senior year.

Note that this is distinct from the "Graduation (Latin) Honors" awarded by the College on the basis of student's overall performance in the degree.
