Honors College

Honors Curriculum

Honors College students take a range of Honors courses that satisfy the General Education Core and program requirements. The Honors Seminar is an interdisciplinary course that is required of all Honors College students. Honors credits can be attained by successfully completing Honors sections and Honors options added to non-Honors courses. This section provides an overview of the courses and options.

Honors Seminar 

The Honors Seminar is a 2000-level interdisciplinary course that highlights the relationship between the humanities, social sciences and STEM fields and features guest lectures by faculty across disciplines. Students read primary and secondary sources on the topic and complete numerous writing assignments, including a research paper. Examples of course topics include “Engineering the Body” (Fall 2019), “War and Technology” (Spring 2020), and "Technology and Civil Liberties" (Fall 2020). The HON 2000 course satisfies one three-credit humanities (HU) elective and the HON 2001 course satisfies one three-credit social science (SS) elective.

Honors Sections

Honors sections of core and elective courses offer distinct approaches to the material and require students to explore issues and problems in depth. Such courses are often discussion-oriented rather than lectures and involve research projects to facilitate the analysis, synthesis and understanding of scholarly work.

Honors Options

Honors options allow faculty members to add requirements to non-Honors courses or sections. Honors options can be added to any course although options are ideal for upper-level electives. The student and faculty member submit a contract outlining the additional work for the course. The contract must be submitted to and approved by Honors College administrators at the beginning of the semester.
