HONORS COURSES

The Honors College offers a distinctive curriculum featuring three types of courses- special sections of courses required in the Core curriculum, junior and senior seminars, and honors contracts, which are extensions of regular courses. As these courses are designed to offer more opportunities for research in preparation for graduate or professional school, they are often more challenging, as they do place more responsibility on the individual student.

HONORS CORE CLASSES
Approximately twenty-five Honors courses are offered each Fall and Spring semester from most areas of the Core curriculum. These courses have average enrollment caps of 16 students for non-science courses and 20 students for science courses.

Upper Level Honors Courses
Each year we offer a few special upper level courses that students may take to satisfy major requirements or as electives to broaden the depth of their undergraduate program. These courses are typically ideal for our Junior and Senior students and typically we have selections from Creative Writing, English, Film Studies, Marketing, and Psychology.
