English Honors Application
We are interested in learning about your experience as an English student and as a writer, so please take the time to respond as fully and thoughtfully as possible to the questions below. You can either use the spaces provided on this application form, or send in your responses as a separate Microsoft Word or PDF document. You must 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. Even if you are a creative writing major or plan to write a creative thesis, we ask that the writing sample be a piece of expository or analytic prose, so we can gauge your preparedness for the research-based Honors Seminar.
