Honors courses are offered in every fall and spring semester. In the course catalog of the college they are marked with an H in the section number. Honors courses are more challenging, involve more discussion and debate, often (if not always) require longer and more in-depth research papers and oral presentations by students. Honors courses are most certainly more demanding, involving usually more reading and preparation.
If you have any doubts or questions about honors courses, please, do not hesitate to contact the Co-Directors of the Honors Program, Amy Eshleman (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Nick Richardson (email@example.com).
