Proposals requested for 2023-24 Honors College seminars

Proposals are currently being accepted for the 2023-24 Cohen Honors College seminars. The college is particularly interested in fall first-year seminars, team-taught and social justice topics. For consideration, participants should submit a course proposal through the Course Information Management system (CIM) and include information about what makes the course an honors-level experience and, if applicable, how this course meets general education requirements. Proposals will be accepted through Feb. 1, 2022.

Course proposals will be routed to the Honors College Faculty Council and relevant university committees for review. Faculty should speak with their department chair or supervisor before submitting a proposal. Instructors whose courses are approved will be asked to confirm college and chair approval and other details related to course scheduling.

Faculty may also use the separate course proposal form to request to teach an existing honors seminar course topic such as HNRS 351 Survey of Leadership, HNRS 352 Survey of Law and Public Policy or HNRS 486 Collaborative Research. For more information about the Cohen Honors College curriculum, please visit the current student page of the college’s website or the undergraduate catalog.

Departmental honors courses: Departments may offer an honors (H-suffix) section of any existing department course by adding a cross-listed course through the CIM. These courses are reviewed by the department and college curriculum committees and honors faculty council. If approved, these courses are scheduled and supported by the department.

For more information, department chairs are welcome to contact Kimberly Engber, dean of the Cohen Honors College or Members can also visit the Resources for Faculty in Honors website for more information.
