Graduation Honors and Awards

Each year, the Department of Art History bestows two honors on graduating undergraduate Art History majors. They are:

  1. Alessandra Comini Award for Outstanding Undergraduate Art History Major
  2. Art History Division Outstanding Senior Award

Recipients are selected based upon their record of achievement in the Art History major, overall GPA, and accomplishments outside the classroom. The awards are given at the SMU Honors Convocation.

The Department of Art History also awards the graduation roles of Art History Department Marshal and Art History Department Reader. These two students have important roles in the spring Meadows School of the Arts graduation ceremony.
