Each semester the campus offers courses specifically designated for Honors students. These courses cover a range of subject areas and are appropriate for students in all fields of study.
The Honors Option allows Honors students and Schreyer Scholars to investigate selected topics in greater depth, in many cases conducting original research under the direction of a faculty member. Honors Options have been offered in biology, business, chemistry, communications, comparative literature, criminal justice, engineering, English literature, finance, history, information sciences, mathematics, physics, psychology, religious studies, sociology, Spanish, speech communications, theater arts, and women's studies.

Honors Independent Study
Many faculty members offer Independent Study courses (of varying numbers of credits) to Honors students and Schreyer scholars. Typically, these courses are designed collaboratively by the student and professor and are much more research-intensive.
Beginning with the second semester pre-registration, Honors students and Schreyer Scholars have first choice of courses and sections. Do not underestimate this perk!
Honors students and Schreyer scholars enjoy the same borrowing privileges as faculty and may check out books for the entire semester unless a special recall is placed on the materials.
