Honors Option Agreement

Turn almost any course into an Honors course with the agreement form. Design the Honors component with the faculty using the framework in the form. The form must be submitted by the end of the third week of classes. The Honors advisor will contact the faculty to confirm the agreement.

Share this information with your faculty member when you request the Honors option. Please note: a faculty member may not have time for an Honors option this semester.

Examples of work completed to earn Honors credit include:

  • A research and reflection paper comprising real-world experience which applies in-class knowledge.
  • A presentation of further studies related to the discipline introducing additional primary source materials, additional problems to solve, or ways to extend course material.
  • Assist professor with a small part of current research related to course.
