Honors Option

Add an Honors notation to a standard 3000/4000 level course

The Honors Option is the primary means for Juniors and Seniors to contribute Honors course work toward their major and maintain their good standing and progress toward College Honors. It is a method for arranging independent work as a condition to receive Honors credit in a standard 3000 or 4000 level course. Student and instructor will design this independent component as an Honors Option Agreement. Presentations, semester projects, primary source research, and conference reports are examples of components added to courses for Honors Option credit.
