The research paper should be 15–20 pages and reflect the scholarly research related to the work done with the faculty mentor. The research paper should include a separate bibliography. The style of the paper, footnotes, and bibliography should conform to the Chicago Manual of Style format. Students accepted into the CURO Summer Research Fellowship program will enroll in HONS4960 and ARHI4990H (total of 6 hours). After the paper has been submitted by the student, the faculty menor will present it to the Art History Area. Together with the mentor, the area will determine whether, based on the merits of the paper, the student will receive ARHI4990H credit as elective or major credit. Museum Internship Credit (ARHI 4995) Students should discuss their interest or opportunities with the Art History area chair before the semester in which it will take place.

The supervising curator will write an official letter on letterhead, outlining the student’s duties and guaranteeing a minimum of 6 hours of work per week for 15 weeks, or the equivalent to the chair of art. At the end of the semester, the student will compose and submit a paper summarizing their work/research and what s/he has learned. The curator will write an official letter on letterhead defining the results of the internship and will identify a recommended grade based on the student's performance. The course ARHI 4995 is only available as 3 credits and does not count toward the art history major's course requirements. It will count as a major elective.
