History majors in the Honors College, in addition to the privileges and exemptions that apply to all Honors College students, are not required to take the lower-level survey courses required of other majors. They are encouraged to fulfill their 33-40 credits in History with 300- and 400-level work. Each Honors College student is also required to complete an Honors thesis, which normally involves six credits of independent research under the direction of a professor and the writing of a 50 to 75 page paper.
