Honors Variants

"Honors variants" are versions of introductory courses in the General Education Program. Honors variants are distinguished by small class size; an emphasis on active learning experiences, such as simulations and projects; and attempts to engage students, faculty, and administrators in collaborative learning.

Most Honors variants are offered once per academic year. Departmental commitments may require changes in the schedule of course offerings.
