Honors Program Classes

Honors seminars are small, discussion-oriented courses with more rigorous reading, writing, and speaking components than average courses.  The classes usually revolve around specialized topics and are often interdisciplinary in nature.  In order to allow for flexible and innovative course offerings, most Honors seminars are taught as special topics courses that vary from semester to semester.
