Do you Intend to Write a History Honors Thesis?

The History faculty would like to encourage our majors to begin thinking seriously about their theses by the end of junior year and to urge intending thesis writers to pursue some manner of research, reading and/or writing over the summer. To do so, we are asking juniors to complete this Declaration of Intent form.

Please note: this form does not replace the official Honors Proposal due at the beginning of the fall semester of the senior year.

Please email History Department Academic Department Coordinator Carey Aubert if you have questions or experience difficulty submitting the form.
