The History Department participates fully in the University of Delaware Honors College, including offering an Honors Degree in History. Each semester the department offers a number of classes in the honors format, including honors sections in European, American and world history introductory surveys as well as as various upper-level courses. Full-time matriculated undergraduate University of Delaware students who are not in the Honors College with at least 12 credits and a UD cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher may also be eligible to enroll in honors courses based upon availability. Strong students are encouraged to enroll in Honors sections, which are characterized by small size, close student-faculty contact, and en emphasis on discussion and writing.
The Honors Degree requires both completion of all the requirements for the History BA or History Education BA (including concentration requirements, as appropriate) and completion of the University's generic requirements for the Honors Degree (as indicated by the Honors College). At least six (6) of the Honors credits in the major must be at the 300-level or above.

Upon successfully researching, writing, and defending a Senior Thesis and fulfilling a range of other requirements articulated by the Office of Undergraduate Research (including grade point average minimum) you may graduate with a Degree with Distinction. The University of Delaware offers Degrees with Distinction to students who sucessfully defend a senior thesis and who meet a range of other requirements articulated by the Office of Undergraduate Research. Graduating with a distinction means graduating with a different kind of degree (e.g., a Bachelor of Arts in History with Distinction). Students who wish to write a thesis but who may not meet the requirements for a Degree with Distinction are also highly encouraged to complete a senior thesis. For students in the Honors College who successfully complete and defend a senior thesis, it is possible to graduate with an Honors Degree with Distinction.
