Teaching Options in Honors


1-credit text discussion course: HNRS 2830

Read a good book lately? Listened to impactful lyrics? Watched a cool film or discovered an impactful piece of art? If it would make an interesting discussion course, consider teaching for Honors! These 1-credit Honors courses are light on outside-work, homework, and grading. They meet once a week for 50 minutes. This options is great for students (and faculty) with packed schedules or who are new to Honors and want to try it out in a low-pressure course.

3-credit course:
HNRS 1100 - 4990

Have a cool idea for a course that you've been dying to teach, but it doesn't quite fit in your department? Want to co-teach with an instructor outside your department or college? Consider teaching a 3-credit Honors course. We cap our courses at 15 students, commonly feature interdisciplinary classes, we favor a seminar-style that is discussion-based. We love outside-the-box topics!
