Honors Contract Courses

Honors is introducing contract courses!  This is an opportunity for you to turn any course you are taking into an Honors course (and have it count as an Honors course!).  By collaborating with a faculty member to engage in a course, you can explore more in-depth, independent research, and potentially present your work on campus, or at regional and national conferences.  Contract course are a great way to work more closely with faculty in your field.  See our 'contract courses' page for details..
