“Thank you for challenging me and pushing me to think one step further, it has made me a better student and a more curious thinker.” -Jordan Hart, 2014 HOnors student
Honors in Art History & Film and Media Studies
The purpose of this honors program is to allow students to extend and deepen work they have found fascinating in earlier classes. To embark on a thesis means developing your voice as a writer, advancing research in the field, making works that matter to you visible in new ways. This process, from start to finish, is closely supported by Art and Art History faculty and Library staff.
Honors in Art Practice
The purpose of the honors thesis exhibition is to extend and deepen artwork students have done in Art Practice classes. The thesis exhibition is not an exploration of an area that the student has never studied before. The topic should have focus and clear parameters. It is expected that students have a solid background in their field of study prior to applying to the honors program. Exposure to a wide range of courses and familiarity with faculty will benefit you in this process.
