Honors Seminars

Teaching an honors course is a unique opportunity to work with fully-engaged, high-ability students in an interactive environment. As the program grows we want to expand our curricular offerings with new honors seminars from faculty across the University addressing the technical, economic, societal, cultural and ethical aspects of the many challenges facing our society in the 21st century.


Seminars are offered for two or three credits (four credit courses with discussion sections have been approved at times), typically lack specific course prerequisites, and have enrollments that are generally limited to 20 students. 2xxx-level seminars are designed to be introductory and yet comprehensive courses focused on innovative ideas and topical issues. 3xxx-level seminars may address more complex themes through advanced reading, writing, and critical thinking.
