English Honors Application

Please complete all fields and respond to the four questions at the bottom as carefully as possible. You can either use the space provided on this application form or print your responses on a separate sheet of paper. You should also supply us with a sample of your critical writing—any essay that you think best shows your skills as a reader of literary texts, films, or other media. Students should submit their writing samples to the department administrator, as Microsoft Word or PDF documents, at this address: renee.heininger@rochester.edu.
