Create Your Own Courses

Honors contract courses allow a student to work with their advisor to create additional educational goals to any major, elective, or general education course. This may be the inclusion of a research component, presenting to peers or the community, or completing field work in relation to the course. Honors contract courses require approval from the instructor and the Honors Advisory Board.
