Seminar Information

Honors seminars are offered during the fall and spring semesters.  Seminars may be offered during J-term and summer sessions if faculty are available and there is student interest.

Seminars are listed in the schedule of classes as HONR 480.  Each seminar topic has a different section number.  The word "honors" is the first word in the title of all honors seminars.

Scholars register for most seminars the same as they would for any other course.  Experimental seminars are taught by one faculty member, are limited to 8 students, and students enrolled in the seminar must come from various majors.  Registration for experimental seminars is a manual process and students must receive approval from the instructor; students who wish to register for a seminar that has only one instructor must contact that instructor directly to receive authorization to enroll in the course.
