Earning Honors Credit


Option One: Honors Project
Students enroll in a regular course and contract with their instructor and Honors Program Director to work on an agreed upon Honors Project.

Option Two: Stand Alone Honors Course
Students may enroll in Honors designated courses (listed as Section 60 in the schedule of classes). There is no "project" to complete as in the option above; however, these Honors designated courses require students to complete longer assignments, readings, essays, exams, and provide presentations that go above and beyond those completed in a non-Honors class.

Option Three: Inclusive Honors Symposium

Students are required to enroll in two Honors courses with a related theme and a one credit hour seminar. This Inclusive Honors Symposium requires students to complete longer  assignments, readings, essays, exams, and provide presentations that go above and beyond a regularly scheduled class.

Option Four: Integrated Honors Course
Instructors teach a hybrid class that has been set up to incorporate Honors students, assigning them extra course work that could include extra reading assignments, essays, research, presentations, etc.
