Part of the philosophy of the Honors curriculum is to have Honors students explore challenges and opportunities in many areas of the University. Therefore, in addition to the required seminars, Honors students must complete courses to support them. These support courses may be taken before or after a seminar to broaden, deepen, and stimulate further reflection.
In HNR 111, Honors students will complete a working copy of the Support Course Plan that reflects their four-year plan. The Support Course Plan should be reviewed and monitored with DegreeWorks and the student's academic advisor/mentor, reflecting any changes in the four-year plan that may occur. Appeals for a variance in the Support Course Plan may be filed with the Associate Dean of Honors.
The following are guidelines for the required support courses according to your degree plan:
B. A. and B. S.
- Must take support courses in at least 10 different prefixes.
- Five of them must be at the 200-level or above.
- All four discipline areas (see below) must be represented twice.
- Must be a course for credit.
The requirements for the B.Mus. degree include all of the above with the exception that only two support courses are required, one each from two disciplines other than the arts.
