Honors Program

Honors Seminars

The seminars are selected through a competitive process involving the Faculty Senate Honors Committee. They are designed to allow highly motivated and dynamic teachers and students the opportunity to learn together. Because of the diversity of student majors in the Honors Program, courses are oriented towards non-majors. Seminars in the past have ranged from once-in-a-lifetime offerings to enhanced versions of courses that faculty regularly teach well. Faculty who wish to propose a seminar should download the proposal form from the Forms and Paperwork webpage.
