Academics is the core of the University Honors Program, and we offer courses designed to engage all Honors students actively in their academic choices and possibilities. All Honors students share a common Honors curriculum that enables all students from every major in every college to complete the University Honors Program requirements their way.

- One Honors-only course (such as ENGL 2160 or CMST 1110 - we have courses to suit your general education needs and these have section numbers [the last 3 digits] in the 90s, so "ENGL 2160-099")
