The History Department at Moravian College

Honors Projects


History students have actively participated in the Honors Program at Moravian College. The Honors Program offers students of proven ability in their senior year the opportunity to pursue a year-long research project under the personal guidance of a faculty member whose own research is in that same area. Honors study in history is invaluable preparation for graduate and professional studies.
