Most Honors courses parallel the Liberal Studies Program curriculum; therefore, they are not additional requirements needed to complete a degree program. Honors credits correspond to the number of hours for the course.
Honors courses differ from regular courses in that they are:
- Smaller than regular courses (not exceeding 21 students);
- Taught by specially selected faculty members who have been chosen in consultation with the dean, the director of Honors Advising, and department heads;
- Discussion-based courses, where lecturing is avoided;
- Courses designed with challenging, creative assignments that may lead to undergraduate research projects
