Advising and Honors

Departmental honors may be awarded to graduating majors for outstanding achievement in history as evidenced by faculty recommendations and high grades. There is no statutory grade point minimum for honors, but the award is not normally made to students with less than a 3.50 GPA in history. Inquiries should be addressed to the Department of History, 101 Fitzgerald House, (248) 370-3510.

Students are eligible for membership in Phi Alpha Theta, the Oakland University chapter of the international honor society in history. Students are selected for membership on the basis of academic achievement.
