Exploratory Honors

Exploratory courses are multi-disciplinary so you can sample different interests. Four are required for graduation, and you choose the ones you want.

Honors Colloquia

Honors colloquia are highly original, seminar-style classes.
Two are required for graduation.

Honors Thesis/Senior Projects

The Senior Project represents a significant endeavor that can be creative, scholarly, scientific, service-oriented, or experiential.  Non-traditional options (leadership portfolio, wellness project, culture project) also exist.
