In Honors courses, you will know your professors and they will know you. You will discuss with your peers and contribute to the course. You will find an open question that sparks your passion, answer it, and share that answer with others.
What makes a course an Honors course is not just 7 piled-on chapters or longer papers, but engaging in the more-theoretical or the more-applicable aspects of a subject, learning through projects or through service, and always the gathering of motivated, brilliant students together with top faculty to challenge and inspire each other.
To graduate with College Honors on your diploma, you begin by taking Honors courses toward the foundation of your degree and toward broadening your general education.
Later, you move into independent learning as your degree becomes more specialized. In your thesis project, you follow your curiosity and use the tools you have acquired to create new knowledge.
You make this path your own with the support of the Honors College advising staff and other University mentors. You might focus on knowing Louisiana and addressing her problems. You may begin research early and supplement your classes with a research internship. You might add courses to add a global perspective to your degree.
In the end, you embark on the next phase of your path, enriched and personally prepared.
