Program Information

School:Mount Royal University
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:History, General
Description:The Honours Program is an in-depth experience with the discipline of History. You will complete a two-course sequence in your last year of study (HIST 5110 and HIST 5120). During these courses, you will define a topic, conduct a literature review, and produce a thesis or project based on original research. The completed thesis will range between 50 and 60 pages of text, not including footnotes and bibliography. Less commonly, you may, with the approval of a sponsoring faculty member, choose to do a project based on your research rather than a traditional thesis. In addition, the general graduation requirements for Honours vary somewhat from the general graduation requirements for the Bachelor of Arts - History. For instance, you must take a minimum of 20 History courses instead of a minimum of 16 History courses. If you are enrolled in the Honours Program, but fail to satisfy all the requirements for an Honours degree (for instance, you do not complete the thesis), but has satisfied all requirements for a Bachelor of Arts - History, you will receive a BA - History degree upon graduation.
