Advanced Honors Seminars

After successfully completing Honors Mindset Seminar, Honors students may choose to take an Advanced Honors Seminar as an Honors Learning Experience. Each Honors Seminar is 1 credit hour, results in a letter grade, and counts as an Honors Learning Experience.

Effective Fall 2023, the course numbers and repeat policy for Advanced Honors Seminars will change. Each seminar may be repeated for up to two credit hours. Completed attempts under the previous numbers count towards the total. For example: past enrollment + future enrollment = max of 2 credit hours for each course number.

  • HON 202a75: Interdisciplinary Investigations = HON 205
  • HON 202a76: Innovation and Inquiry = HON 206
  • HON 202a77: Leadership in Action = HON 207
  • HON 202a78: Culture, Context, and Identity = HON 208

Example 1: If you have taken HON 202a75 in the past, you may take HON 205 one time in the future. The same is true of the other course numbers.

Example 2: If you have never taken an Advanced Honors Seminar, you may take each course number a maximum of two times (as long as the topic is different).
