Honors Courses for First-Year Students Fall 2021

Visit this page for information on selecting your Honors course for fall, including how to see all available Honors courses in STAR, as well as course descriptions for select Honors courses.  

As a first-year student, you will complete registration in a one-on-one virtual advising appointment with an advisor in your major as part of your New Student Orientation experience. 

This page will be updated as information becomes available on course changes and new course offerings.

How to Find Honors Courses in STAR

Want to see most available Honors courses for Fall 2021 in one place? Follow the instructions below.  

  1. Go to star.wvu.edu and log in with your WVU ID and password. 
  2. Select "Student Services & Housing."
  3. Select "Registration."
  4. Select "Browse Classes."
  5. Select "Fall 2021."
  6. Do not select a subject. This will keep all subjects selected.
  7. Under "Campus," select "WVU Campus Course."
  8. Under "Attribute," select "Honors Course."
  9. Click "Search." You should now see the current list of Honors courses for the spring semester. 

Remember, you can earn Honors credit directly through Honors courses, Honors sections of regular courses, or through Honors add-ons.

Honors add-ons give you Honors credit for the number of hours you earn in the course plus the number of credits in the add-on (so if a course is three credits and the add-on is zero credits, you will earn three Honors credits if you successfully complete both the course and the Honors add-on).

If none of the listed courses will work with your schedule next semester, remember there are  other ways to earn Honors credit, such as by contracting a non-Honors course for Honors credit. Please contact your Honors advisor with any questions.

Fall 2021 Course List

**Please note: some of the courses listed below have both Honors sections AND non-Honors sections available. Be careful while building your schedule to select the Honors section in order to earn Honors credit for the course. If you aren't sure whether a course counts for Honors credit, contact your advisor and the Honors College ( honors@mail.wvu.edu).**

John Craynon 

Engineering Sciences Building | Room 501 09:00 AM - 09:50 AM MWF | CRN: 87427

“Materials for the Future” will charge students with examining the challenges of meeting today’s needs for raw materials and energy while also taking into account geopolitical issues and growing concerns of global climate change. Students will hear from experts in a variety of fields and gain an understanding of how data and knowledge from science, engineering, economics, social sciences and other disciplines can be used together in decision making. How do we balance our societal needs for these materials with the impact attaining them has on our quality of life? What are the ecological, economic, political and social costs to acquiring these materials and energy?

HONR 204A - H02 - GEF 4

Stefanie Hines

“The Road to Inequality” will examine the history of systemic racism in land ownership and property rights in the United States, from conflicts between early settlers and Native Americans to today. Re-examining long-held ideas about the American dream, housing, land rights and racial discrimination, students will conduct their own hands-on research through historical records, policy and data. State-of-the-art software and interactions with community members and local politicians will help bring to life the landscape of inequity and factors that created the massive divide in land ownership that continues today.


Arthurdale, WV Matters 

HONR 204B - H02 - GEF 4

Renée K. Nicholson, Ann Pancake, Michael Walsh

Oglebay Hall | Room 110 04:00 PM - 05:15 PM TTR | CRN#:  87429

“Arthurdale, WV Matters” teaches students how to connect with historical sites and the non-profit organizations and people who run them. Combining business and marketing with public humanities, students will develop skills in promoting and preserving sites of cultural and historical importance. Focusing on Arthurdale, students in this team-taught course will explore Arthurdale’s history from the New Deal to the present day, examine problematic aspects of the site related to class and race, interact with Arthurdale craftspeople, learn about issues facing Appalachia and rural communities, and gain the tools to help sustain sites of significance. Students will also reflect on heritage, traditions and history and their relevance to civic and cultural life today.


Dangerous Music 

HONR 206A - H02 - GEF 7

Jennifer Walker 

CPASS Building | Room 103 02:00 PM - 03:15 PM TTR | CRN#:  87430

In “Dangerous Music,” students will explore the ways music and danger have become intertwined and, in some cases, inseparable. Focusing on select themes throughout history, this course will draw on studies in fields of political science, religious history, gender studies, sociology and music. Dangerous music can be found throughout historical periods, musical styles and global cultures. It has at points been seen as a seductive peril, a threat against society and culture, and even been used as an instrument of punishment and torture. Students will ask how “dangerous” music is perceived in terms of gender, sexuality, race and politics. Who has considered music to be dangerous and why? How in history has music been seen as a threat to established norms? What are our responsibilities as consumers? Students will create micro-podcasts exploring the themes of the course throughout the semester.


Extractive Capitalism

HONR 207A - H02 - GEF 7

Devin Smart 

Woodburn Hall | Room G11 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM TTR | CRN#:  87431

“Extractive Capitalism” will use the concept of extractivism to investigate the changing relationship between the economy and the natural world since the start of the Industrial Revolution. Extractivism refers to the ways that modern economies drive the mass extraction of natural resources, and students will study the political, socio-economic and environmental consequences of this process. Specifically, the course will examine fossil fuels and the worlds they have created, starting with how coal formed the basis of post-1800 industrial societies. Then, students will move to the petroleum age, considering how this new form of energy transformed the world. Along the way, students will learn about other extractive industries, as well as global inequalities shaped by colonialism, decolonization and the role of power in the world economy. The course concludes with a focus on extractivism and more recent globalization, and their connection to climate change.
