Honors Foundations (UH) courses are the underpinnings of the Honors College experience. Traditionally limited to 15 seats to maximize meaningful academic discourse, relationship building, and faculty-student interactions, these courses allow students to explore a diverse array of topics while often granting general education core credit. After the first 6 hours, Honors Foundations count as Honors Electives.

Departmental Honors courses are offered throughout colleges across the University, feature the most outstanding and committed faculty, and are limited to only Honors College students. These courses are smaller than their non-honors counterparts and are traditionally offered as options to substitute for general education courses that fulfill core requirements. Departmental Honors courses are not typically more difficult than non-Honors sections but offer more discussion and interaction with faculty.

The Honors by Contract option provides up to 6 hours of Honors credit for Honors College students taking a departmental course at the 300 or 400 level.  In order to earn Honors credit, the student must collaborate with the course’s instructor to create an additional assignment or learning element to raise the course to Honors level work and make at least a B on the additional project. Faculty interested in learning more about the Honors by Contract process and approving applications can do so via the Honors College Approval System. Click here to learn more about how to set up an Honors by Contract course.

Students may pursue an Independent Study in a subject area chosen in consultation with a qualified faculty member who will supervise the project. Often, self-directed studies lead to conference presentations, publications, and other experiences unique to the student’s interests. Students can receive credit in a plethora of ways either in one single semester or over the course of many semesters.

All graduate level coursework counts towards the Honors College requirements, and Honors College students are encouraged to explore graduate courses in their major field.

The Accelerated Master’s Program (AMP)allows highly talented and motivated students to earn their bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in five years in certain departments. Students should begin the application process in the fall of their junior year. Click this link for more information about AMP.
