HNRS 299 — Special Topics
Required seminar for sophomore honors students. Two faculty members from two different disciplines together engage the newly-selected honors students from majors across the curriculum in a multidisciplinary approach to the metaphysical, cultural, spiritual, and material aspects of human nature. More generally, this course hopes to model integrative thinking and study. For Spring 2018, the topic is “The Book as Concept and Object".” One unit.

HNRS 294, 295, 296 — Second, Third and Fourth Year Honors Colloquium
Fall, spring
Evening workshops and discussions focused on developing academic skills, and interests. Formal workshops prepare students to write an “intellectual autobiography,” submit applications for grants and fellowships, and make formal academic presentations. Seniors in the Honors Program choose their own topic for colloquia and engage outside speakers. The theme of the College Honors Colloquium for 2017-18 will be "Who Do You Think You Are? Exploring Identity in the Liberal Arts and Beyond". Pass/Fail

HNRS 395 — Honors Seminars
(topics change annually)

HNRS 494, 495 — Honors Thesis
Fall, spring
Honors seniors take one unit’s worth of thesis credit each semester, which is graded at the end of the second semester by the student’s advisor, with input from readers. The thesis is a substantial independent project either in or out of a student’s major, which means that it may count for major credit or not. Two units.
