Honors courses enable qualified, highly motivated students to enrich their study through challenging honors course work. Honors courses differ from regular sections in that your goals and assignments are more centered around your evolving interests. You will be encouraged to think independently and critically, to participate actively in discussions and to learn in collaboration with your fellow students. Honors courses stimulate broader and deeper consideration of the subject matter and encourage the exploration of the interrelationships of ideas across disciplines. Each honors course will have a special transcript identifier. Universities and employers favor students who seek the greater challenge offered through honors courses.|
The approach to honors courses may vary from campus to campus. At some campuses, special sections are designated as honors courses. Some campuses offer specified combinations of honors courses scheduled and designed in coordination with one another for the purpose of interdisciplinary study. "Honors options," in which honors students take part in a regular course section while also completing a special honors component of the course are also offered. Honors contract courses, in which the student and instructor agree to a particular independent study, are also offered. Honors faculty advisors are available at each campus to aid you with course selection. The Counseling Center can provide you with further information.
