In How to change font size for bibliography?, people discuss changing the Bibliography heading font size without changing the size of the "References" heading.

I would like to also make the "References" heading be normal size.

How do I do this?

I would prefer to use the bibtex style alpha. I am using the class article.

Here is my code:

\usepackage{amsfonts, amsmath, amssymb}

    Welcome to TeX.sx!. Please provide a minimal working example (MWE) we can play with - it will encourage users to answer too. Do you mean the bibligraphy style by "alpha"? I can't think of anything else but seems legit to check - alpha can mean so many things... btw which documentclass are you trying to use?

    Hi, it appears you've created two accounts, the one that created the question and the one that edited it. You can have StackExchange merge them, by following the instructions at tex.stackexchange.com/help/merging-accounts Nov 5, 2013 at 22:50

    The general package is not available; since the headings=normal option is not standard, I guess it has to do with this package. So it's impossible to answer without a pointer to the package.
