Honors Foundations Courses

Honors Foundations Courses, taught by our Honors Faculty Fellows, are special topics courses approved for General Education Foundations credit. These courses are special topics "big ideas" classes with deeply engaged teaching and learning practices that bring faculty expertise to Honors students at the introductory level. These exciting and innovative courses rotate topics annually.

These special topics courses are listed under course number “shells” that are keyed to specific GEF requirements.  

Each course will serve as the shell for course topics that are proposed under the auspices of the  Honors Faculty Fellows program. Sections will typically be capped at 25 students.  Each accepted Honors Foundations Course will then be offered once in each semester in an academic year and will rotate to an innovative new subject in the next academic year.
