Honors students know their courses will offer challenges and opportunities not found in other classrooms. Professors are re-designing their courses to create seminar-style class meetings and intensive research projects that provoke students to use their critical thinking skills and creativity. Students can expect to have an honors course at every step during their time in the program from Honors Core Courses in the early years to Departmental and College Honors Courses as they prepare to write their Honors Thesis/Capstone Project.
All students also must complete one Experiential Learning Project each year they are in the program. Students who enter the program as incoming freshmen will complete the project as part of their FYE classes, while sophomores, juniors, and seniors will choose from a list of available opportunities.
