Honors courses range from introductory to advanced levels. Courses are small (12 – 25 students), seminar-style experiences where students debate, create, and actively participate in their learning.
Honors Option courses are individually negotiated, honors versions of standard courses. For a course in which a student wants to do deeper work, the student requests that the faculty member oversee an Honors Option and writes a plan (with the faculty member) for modified course assignments that will enrich and enhance the learning in the course. This type of course allows students to customize their honors experience.
In addition to standard IST and SRA courses, faculty work with students in credit-bearing, individual or joint research project courses and one-on-one independent study courses. These courses are ideal for students who want to explore areas of interest that are not addressed in standard IST or SRA courses.
