We welcome proposals to teach University Honors seminars during the 2016-17 academic year and for seminars with study tours during Fall 2017. These courses are an integral part of the University Honors Program (UHP), which comprises the top 7% of UC undergraduates across colleges and disciplines.
How is the University Honors Program Different at UC?
The UHP is quite different than many honors colleges or programs at other universities. In other programs, high-achieving students are typically required to complete advanced courses and maintain a certain GPA. The UHP takes this further with focuses on experiential learning and the individual student’s goals and aspirations. We guide students in maximizing their educational opportunities while discovering and pursuing their passions in life and using their gifts and talents to make meaningful contributions. Students are challenged through their honors seminars and experiential learning in our thematic areas. Consequently, UHP honors seminars need to be more than a highly intellectually rigorous course and must also represent the holistic mission of the program.
Faculty from across UC's colleges are engaged in teaching honors seminars. Faculty from all disciplines are invited to submit proposals.
