The College

Starting at the end, the honors thesis is, of course, the climax and most lasting result of an honors major in History. Our goal is to help you act as a professional historian does, in producing a work of original scholarship – which, in History, means a specific engagement with primary sources, as well as mastering the secondary material on a topic.

"This experience taught me the most important identity in American Culture today which is...We stand with a choice, as John C. Calhoun put it, to choose a life of ease and comfort or a life of labor and virtue. Personally, by completing this endeavor, I have chosen the latter for which I am forever grateful."
