Wagner College policy regarding an Honors section concurrent with a non-Honors section of a course: Instructors may apply to offer an Honors section concurrent with a non-Honors section. The instructor should propose differentiated versions of the syllabus for each section to the department chair and the Director of the Honors Program. If approved, the two concurrent sections will count as a single unit for faculty workload calculations. The Director of the Honors Program, in consultation with the department chair, shall determine the appropriate class limits for each of the two sections.
