Honors Courses

Honors courses are the central focus of the University Honors Program. The courses are limited in class size in order to enhance learning and to maximize interaction among students and faculty. They are a special way to meet university graduation requirements; almost all meet General Education requirements of the university. Thus, the University Honors Program does not impose additional credit requirements upon students. The courses are of three types: Colloquia, Electives, and Seminars.Mike Huggins and students honors course


  • Colloquia are interdisciplinary courses designed for honors students.


  • Electives are special sections of regular departmental courses that are limited to students in the University Honors Program.


  • There are four 1-credit Honors seminar courses.
  • Including HNRS 100 (First-Year Honors seminar) and HNRS 400 (Senior Honors Seminar) which are required for graduation with University Honors.
  • HNRS 410 (Mentoring in Honors) and HNRS 420 (Tutoring in Honors) are offered to upper-level Honors students who have applied for consideration to teach or tutor in Honors.
