Presidential Scholars who start in Fall 2015 and beyond will take a series of four Honors Seminars. Each Honors Seminar is 1 credit hour and counts as an Honors Learning Experience.
HON 102A17: Honors Mindset Seminar
Taken in the fall of freshman year. Students investigate theories of learning and the Honors Program Learning Framework during a series of discussions and labs. Students begin collecting evidence of learning through the construction of electronic portfolios with digital badges.
The following three seminars may be taken in any order. Prior to the start of registration, students will be notified of the seminar options for the following semester and will be directed to an online form to indicate which seminar(s) they are interested in taking.
HON 202A75: Interdisciplinary Investigations
These seminars will focus on interdisciplinary connections and ways disciplines can inform and influence each other.

Students apply these perspectives by exploring real-life problems and developing solutions.
HON 202A77: Leadership in Action
This course encourages students to identify and analyze effective qualities of successful leaders and facilitates an applied leadership experience.
