Honors Seminars

What is an Honors Seminar?

What sets an Honors seminar apart from a regular general education class?

Honors seminars are smaller, ranging from about 10-25 students with an average class size of 15 students. This arrangement allows for more discussion-based learning and gives Honors students the opportunity to really get to know each other and their professor.

While most Honors seminars have a slightly heavier workload, the real difference lies in emphasis. For example, some Honors Theology seminars expound on a particular theological issue for most of the semester in addition to the general information covered in other basic theology classes. Honors Speech may cover certain principles of rhetoric applied to public speaking, and an Honors English class may require reading a few additional novels which will result in writing a paper or doing a presentation on one of them.

Below is a list of the Honors Seminars offered during the semester. Many of these seminars are recurring. This list is not official and is subject to change. Classes may be canceled or added prior to the beginning of the semester. Check ASIST for the most accurate information.


Benefits of Attending

Beyond the basic course requirements of non-honors sections, Honors sections and the professors that teach them to take time to explore, in-depth, the many facets of the concepts covered, providing a rich and memorable educational experience for the students involved.

To challenge their students to go above and beyond the status quo, most professors teaching Honors class sections will either require a more extensive project (i.e., a 9-10 page paper instead of a 5-7) or have additional project or book assigned that is not required in their other sections. Typically, the workload depends on the professor and on how much the student is willing to apply himself or herself to the subject at hand.
