What are Honors Courses?
Honors Program courses emphasize enriched rather than accelerated learning, adding dimension and depth to the subject at hand. They stress dialogue and active learning and are limited to 15 students at the upper levels and 20 students at the beginning level. The result is closer classroom interaction and greater intellectual and emotional investment. Honors classes are offered at all levels of the curriculum, from 100 level to 400 level.
Who can register?
