Honors Scholars courses aren’t structured to require more work than non-Honors courses. Honors Scholars courses are designed to enrich your academic experience, not to make it harder. Smaller, interdisciplinary courses allow for in-depth exploration of course topics through in-class discussions and high impact learning practices (e.g., service learning, research, project-based learning, etc.). The connection among the five Honors Scholars courses and cohort-based learning encourages growth and sustained conversations. The Honors faculty challenge students to dig deeply and wrestle with universal questions about the human experience and to put their learning into action through projects that create positive change in the community.
All first year Honors Scholars receive guidance, advising, mentoring, and support from Honors Faculty Fellows to assist students during their transition to college life and to help ensure their academic success.
