Honors Classes

The heart of the Honors College is the Honors classroom where faculty members offer opportunities to engage in learning that challenges the intellect and advances academic achievement. Honors classes will encourage you to think critically, assess issues, make and defend arguments, and synthesize ideas.  

Traditional Honors Classes 

Small enrollment in courses that are only open to Honors students allows you to take an active role in the learning process and to grow intellectually.  

Combined Sections Courses 

In some courses where enrollment is open to Honors and non-Honors students, a number of seats are reserved for Honors students. In these courses, you will be required to complete additional work above the requirements for non-Honors students to earn Honors credit. Instructors provide a supplemental syllabus that outlines the requirements for Honors credit. Honors supplementary requirements are designed to provide more sophisticated engagement with the course material and may take many forms including readings, research, papers, projects, field work, projects, performances, or presentations. 

Current Honors Course Offerings 

The following courses are being offered for Honors credit in Spring 2020. The Registrar's listing of Honors courses provides more detailed information.
