Honors Courses

Students are required to enroll in one Honors course each semester until they have completed four Honors courses. Special exceptions may apply, and should be discussed with the Honors director.

The Honors Program classes are meant to be challenging; they aren't meant to be torture. Honors courses are designed to be innovative, enjoyable, and rewarding since students of similar abilities are grouped together in small classes. Students will get to know your professors well- just the kind of thing that helps when you need letters of recommendation. The books, papers, tests, and projects will expand the way you think. The number of assignments will be about the same--they'll just be more interesting and more creative. They won't be busy work.

If students do well in regular classes, they will also do well in honors classes. And the fact that a student  took honors level work is clearly indicated on their  transcript.
