Students majoring in Art History with an honors-level grade-point average may apply to receive Departmental Honors in Art History, which involves writing a senior honor's thesis. Progress in completing this senior thesis will be guided through the student's enrollment in a senior honor's tutorial. Awards will be given to thesis projects that successfully demonstrate a high degree of scholarly achievement and self-motivation.

Additionally, participation in the University Honors Program is an option for exceptional and highly motivated students across all fields of study, including art. Outstanding first-year applicants receive invitations to enroll in the Honors Program based on their academic record in high school. Current students in their freshman or sophomore years who have a GPA of 3.5 or better map apply to the program.
