Four Honors "Components"
In addition to four Honors Courses, students design four Honors Components in regular courses.
Each year students select a project in one of their regular non-Honors courses, converting that project into an "Honors Component" conducted for Honors credit. Students work with a professor to customize that project, tailoring it to the students interests, goals or needs.
Typically students will undertake Honors Components in the semesters they are not taking an Honor Course. Components represent a customized education; each component may be designed by the student and professor to deepen knowledge of course subject matter, to apply subject matter of the course to the student major or career goals, or to sharpen skills the student would like to hone.
