HON 190: Introduction to Honors (6 cr.):
This team-taught course focuses on the theme of knowing the self, introducing students to different theories of the self that have arisen across disciplines and throughout history, as well as exploring issues of personal development and adaptation to college. In addition to class discussion, this course will emphasize the development of expository and persuasive writing skills by pairing composition instruction with the course theme. Prerequisite: Admission to Honors Program.
HON 290: Revolutions in Thought (3 cr.):
This course investigates on three separate and disciplinarily distinct moments of intellectual "revolution," with a focus on how "ways of thinking" work, change, and develop over time. This content focus is paired with exercises in critical thinking and problem-formation, moving students to questions of intellectual innovation and authority. By analyzing the works, habits, and milieus of great thinkers, students will investigate questions of creative thinking — whether in the sciences, the humanities, or the arts — and will work toward developing authority in an area of their own interest. Prerequisite: Admission to Honors Program. Offered spring.
HON 370: Honors Seminars (3 cr.):
Honors Seminars are interdisciplinary courses on challenging topics; they offer students and faculty the opportunity to explore more experimental subjects and/or learning environments. Prerequisites: Open to students in the Honors Program of at least sophomore standing. Also open to non-Honors students of at least sophomore standing with the consent of the instructor. Offered Spring or May.
HON 400: Directed Reading (1 cr.):
Honors students are required to register for two credits of directed reading with two different faculty mentors of their choice. These two credits may be taken in the same semester or may be spread out over different semesters. These courses will allow students, through independent reading and conversation with a faculty member, to develop expertise in areas of interest that may help them in the development of their honors projects. Prerequisites: Sophomore standing and consent of instructor.
HON 410: Developing an Original Project (1 cr.):
In this course, Honors students of senior standing meet together under the direction of a faculty member to share resources, ideas, and strategies for designing their final projects. By the end of the course, students must present a proposal for an Honors Project to the Honors Committee for approval. Prerequisite: Senior standing and at least one semester of HON 400.
HON 480: Senior Honors Project (3 cr.):
In this capstone course, students design an original project that can be publicly presented. The shape of the project will be determined by the student in consult with a faculty mentor, but should exemplify the student's ability to think creatively and engage practically with topic of inquiry. Completed projects must be presented to a faculty panel selected by the student. Appropriate Honors Projects may be selected for presentation at the College's annual Humanities Fair. Prerequisite: Successful completion of HON 410.
