Fall 2019 Courses
honors college curriculum
The Honors College curriculum is made up of innovative courses that give students the opportunity to embrace hands-on learning. Many Honors curriculum classes are taught by Honors Faculty and are aimed to address critical real-world problems.
UH 2124: Honors Reading Seminars are an enjoyable, low-pressure way to earn Honors credit.
These courses are excellent places to improve your reading and public speaking abilities. They allow students to study and discuss books of their choice; they meet for 50 minutes once a week, are limited to 12 participants, and they are graded on a Pass/Fail basis. Reading seminar participants earn 1 Pass/Fail honors credit for each reading seminar taken.

Departmental Honors courses are taught and offered by academic departments across the university. These courses end with an “H” and are found in the course registration system within specific subjects.
