Honors Option and Honors Independent Study

In addition to honors courses, Honors students may take a non-honors course listed on the schedule (taught by a full-time faculty member) and, with the permission and assistance of the professor, take the course with an Honors Option.

Complete guidelines on the honors option may be found on the Honors Option form. This form can be filled in on-line and printed.

Honors students may also do an honors independent study. Students choosing this option register, with the permission of a full-time faculty member, for an independent study or research course, and then complete the Honors Independent Study or Research form. This form, which contains the complete instructions, can be filled in on-line and printed.

Honors students doing an independent study project must present their work at the Student Research Conference held each semester. Examples of previous projects presented at the conference:
