Undergraduate Honors Program in Art History
The Honors Program is encouraged for Art History majors who are considering attending graduate school. The Honors program in Art History entails a sequence of three courses:
- A course in theory and methods of art historical research, either AHI 100 or 190A-L or (with permission) AHI 200A.
- A 4-unit independent study, AHI 199, under direction of the faculty member supervising the Honors thesis.
- AHI 194H, also 4 units, in which the student completes the thesis paper, normally 25-30 pages.
The requirements for the Honors program must be completed in addition to the regular requirements for the Art History major. Students who are interested in writing an Honors thesis are encourage to consult with the Undergraduate Adviser during their junior year. Students participating in this Program are candidates for departmental recommendation for graduation with High or Highest Honors. See the Academic Information chapter, Letters and Science Honors section, of the general catalog and consult the department Undergraduate Adviser for more information.
