Honors seminars challenge and broaden the intellectual horizons of University Honors students. Honors seminars are open to all honors students from any academic discipline or academic year. Honors seminars are typically small (15-25 students) and discussion based. In most cases, there are no pre-requisites for these courses. All honors seminars count as one honors experience.
Honors seminars are designed uniquely for honors students and are expected to align with one or more of the thematic areas - community engagement, global studies, leadership, and research and creative arts. Honors seminars engage students in experiential learning, taking learning beyond the typical classroom.
Students can view the list of honors seminars offered by term by clicking on the links located on the right-hand column of this page. Students can also search for honors seminars on OneStop by selecting "H - Honors Course" under “Attributes.” Most honors seminars can be used to fulfill BoK (general education) requirements.
University Honors students can register for most honors seminars as they would any other class. However, seminars with study tours require applications; please see the individual course pages for more information.
In order to count the honors seminar as an honors experience, you are required to document it within your learning portfolio. Please use the Learning Portfolio Documentation Guide to assist you in documenting your learning.
Please note: Other courses offered at UC that happen to have the word "seminar" (or "special topics") in the title are not considered to be honors seminars.
Undergraduate students who are not in the University Honors Program are welcome to enroll in honors seminars if the following guidelines are met:
Contact University Honors with your full name and M-Number at email@example.com for enrollment permission.
Faculty compete annually to teach honors seminars. Before proposing an honors seminar, please review the honors pedagogy page. Once you have reviewed this page, you are encouraged to submit a proposal. Proposals are due in mid-October annually and are reviewed by a sub-committee of the University Honors Council which includes faculty, staff, and students from across the University.
