The distinction of honors in the undergraduate curriculum existed as early at 1877, both for "in course" achievement and "Special Honors" work. Departments had varying requirements and criteria for awarding honors. In 1957 a Committee on Honors was established to systematize rules for awarding Honors in both in course and Special Honors programs. By the 1960s it was common for many departments, at least in the humanities, to require a thesis for honors consideration, and the undergraduate honors thesis program was administered by the office of the Dean of the College.
