What are Honors-only Courses?
They are special courses offered each term to members of the Honors Program. Honors courses have a smaller class size compared to regular classes and are structured to specifically meet the needs of Honors students.
Do Honors Courses Require More Work than other Courses?
Honors courses aren't designed to require more work. These courses are designed to provide Honors students with an opportunity to learn in a seminar style, participate in discussions and hands-on activities, and work one-on-one with faculty members.
Are Honors Classes Harder? Will They Hurt My GPA?
Honors courses are not meant to be extremely difficult or lower your GPA. They are just meant to provide different kinds of classes.
