Honors Courses and Contracts
A large part of The Honors College experience is taking Honors courses. These smaller classes, capped at 25 students, offer:
- personal attention
- dedicated professors
- discussion-based learning
- meaningful content
- proactive and academically excellent peers
- a strengthening of the Honors community
Students can earn Honors credit in a non-Honors class through an Honors Contract. Typically, a Contract involves performing some additional class work designed to enrich the course experience. The Honors contract project may involve a research paper, class presentation, lab experiment, special set of readings or problems, the creation of a website or PowerPoint, discussions with the instructor, and more—anything that enables a student to examine an aspect of the course in greater depth. Contracts are arranged with the course instructor in the course, but also require approval of the Departmental Honors Advisor and The Honors College.
