|How the Honors Program Applies to the Core Curriculum and Major|
Students Who Complete the Program
Upon completion of the four-course Honors sequence (HNRS 1391, 1392, 2391, 2392) and the Contemporary Problems Seminar (HNRS 4395), the student will be credited with fulfilling 15 credit hours in the core curriculum in the following way:
- English (the first course – ENGL 1341: The Classical Tradition – Lit & Comp I)
- Theology (a fourth course)
- Philosophy (a fourth course beyond the systematic or historical sequence)
- History (any course)
- Social science (any course)
No course may be applied to the mathematics, natural science, language, oral communication or fine arts block of the core curriculum. Upon completion of the Independent Research Project (HNRS 4394), the student will receive 3 credit hours in his/her major field. The Honors Program adds only 3 credit hours to any major program already in place at the University: Community Service Project (HNRS 3391).
Students Who Withdraw from the Program
If a student leaves the program after completing one course, he/she will receive credit for the Honors course as an elective. It cannot fulfill any requirements of the core curriculum.
If a student leaves the program after completing two or more courses, he/she may designate the appropriate number of blocks in the core curriculum requirements, to which he/she wishes to apply the Honors credits.
