8-9 credits in the major (2-3 courses, depending on credit model). Click here to view which courses in the college major need to be taken for honors credit. Annual symposia (one symposium per year - freshman, sophomore, junior, senior) are required to complete the honors program. See diagram below for an overview of how each symposium is structured. These are all 0-credit courses. The focus of each annual symposium will change based on the five core domains of the honors program:

  • Ethics (Freshman)
  • Research (Sophomore)^
  • Service (Junior)^
  • Leadership (Senior)^
  • Cultural Awareness (Integrated throughout program)
^ Transfer honors students will complete the number of symposia that remain upon admittance into the Honors Institute, depending on which year level the student enters the program.

Students analyze the five core honors domains in depth throughout the curriculum by reading texts from the "Great Books" collection as they formulate their own answers to the "Great Questions" of human thought.
