Lower-Division Honors CoursesHonors classes adapt the content of many required introductory courses to the capabilities of highly motivated students. Other than the two required Honors Great Texts courses (plus the strongly recommended First-Year Seminar course), Honors students may choose from among a wide variety of Honors classes offered each semester, based upon their interests and scheduling needs. Honors students complete the lower-division portion of the curriculum by earning credit for a total of 7 Honors units (i.e., 7 classes or 21 credit-hours of Honors coursework) during their first two years of study. (The required Honors Great Texts courses count toward this total.)
Great Texts Program, together constitute a required component of Honors Program work, and they can substitute for other basic requirements on students' degree plans.
