Honors College Courses

Honors College classes are small (limited to 15 students), are taught by carefully chosen faculty, emphasize students' active involvement in their learning, and usually count toward other university requirements. Plentiful opportunities for individual study -- including the Senior Thesis and Project, Research in Honors, and Departmental Independent Study -- give students exciting experiences in following their intellectual curiosity.

Non-Seminar Options

There are several ways junior and senior level Honors College students can gain Honors credit through independent work, including Departmental Independent Study, Honors Tutorial, Research in Honors, Senior Honors Project, and the Senior Honors Thesis. These are courses in which a student designs and carries out a plan of study with the approval and guidance of a faculty member. It is up to the student to find a faculty member who is willing to supervise the independent work.

In addition, students can earn honors credit by studying abroad and/or completing graduate course work (700-level or above). See links below.
