Support L&S students and the L&S mission by teaching and mentoring students in the Honors Program!
We invite you to:
- Read an overview of the L&S Honors Program
- Learn about the types of Honors courses and how to offer them
- Encourage intellectually curious and motivated students in your classes to connect with Honors advising and consider formally pursuing an Honors degree in L&S
- In fall semesters, apply for optional funding to teach an “Honors Only” course during the following academic year
Honors Only Course Funding
Apply in the fall to receive funding for your proposed Honors Only course in the subsequent academic year (fall, spring, or summer).
The deadline to apply for funding during the 2023-24 academic year was November 18, 2022.

Ways to Teach Honors
Offer low-enrollment seminars or small, professor-taught discussion sections intended to foster intellectual engagement, active learning, and community for Honors Program students
Cover notably more content or go into greater depth, often at a theoretical level, than in non-Honors versions of a course
Accelerated Honors courses are not limited to Honors Program students, but may have other eligibility criteria.
Allow individual students to select the Honors Option during enrollment and then complete an Honors-specific project or experience that enriches their learning and complements the standard work for the course
Form an official, student-initiated agreement that allows a student to earn Honors credit in a non-Honors course.
If you are open to supporting multiple students who wish to earn Honors credit, consider setting up your course as Honors Optional.
Support Honors students who are seeking introductory research experiences over the summer or completing a Senior Honors Thesis
