Honors Courses

honors classHonors is an academic program, analogous to an academic minor concentration, which is compatible with any major (or even, with careful advisement, double major). Many of the courses cross-list within departments, but each is designed specifically as an honors course - reading-intensive, writing-intensive, intimate, participatory, interdisciplinary, and offering opportunities for individual and collaborative research.
