How to Choose an Honors Course
The Honors course you choose for your first semester could be a course that also completes requirements for your major, a General Education Foundations course, a special topics course from our Honors Faculty Fellows, or even a research course through the Research Apprenticeship Program, which gives first-semester freshmen the opportunity to get started in research.
The adviser in your major will speak with you about which course options are best for you. Learn how to look up Honors courses and see a full list of Honors courses appropriate for first-year students. Find a list of Honors courses that also fulfill GEF requirements.
