Honors Courses

NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR FALL 2022!
A total of 3 hours of HON 300 (1 semester, usually in Fall) OR earned in HON 483 (over 2 semesters with 1-credit in Fall and 2-credits in Spring) may be substituted for 1 HON 480 seminar in the required curriculum. The initiative to offer these new courses and accept these credits toward the required curriculum was supported by your input in student surveys. Thank you for participating in your Honors College.

Upper-Division Honors Seminars and Experiential Learning Courses

Enrollment in all courses within this first section are controlled by the Honors College as they are by permission only. Students attend Honors Advising sessions, arranged by appointment, to obtain permission to register for these courses. Those students who are nearest to graduation are generally given priority, when necessary.

Interdisciplinary Honors Seminars

Honors students are generally required to complete at least two interdisciplinary HON 480 Honors Seminars as part of the Honors Curriculum. Each semester there are several of these small, interdisciplinary seminars offered through the College by outstanding faculty from across the University. Details for these seminars, as always, are available in the PDF file linked to below the table.

Experiential & Collaborative Learning Courses

In addition to the required Honors Seminars, the college also offers by permission experiential learning courses that allow students valuable opportunities in leadership and collaborative community-based learning. Every semester, these courses include HON 484 The Honors Oracle (newsletter). Students in this course develop at least three published newsletters for the Honors College each semester while serving as either a writer or editor. In addition, we always offer HON 488 Honors College Student Association (HCSA) Steering Committee, which is an MU SGA recognized organization. The Steering Committee is in charge of organizing at least one academic event, social event and service event for Honors College students each semester. These events contribute to fulfillment of the mission of the Honors College and their planning and delivery provide essential leadership opportunities for those who serve on the HCSA.

There will also be (periodically) two other experiential learning courses. The first of these is HON 300, Honors Peer Mentoring, which is a course that focuses on leadership training and service to the college through collaborative, project-based community engagement. The next is HON 483, TEDxMarshallU Internship, which provides hands-on training to plan and hold a TEDx event on campus. Enrollment in HON 483 will require that you contact the instructor and obtain permission through both Dr. Kinghorn and the Honors College. Details are in the PDF linked to on the course title below.

NOTE: A total of 3 hours of HON 300 (earned in 1 semester, usually in Fall) OR HON 483 (earned over 2 semesters with 1-credit in Fall and 2-credits in Spring) may be substituted for 1 HON 480 seminar in the required curriculum.

Honors Seminar Archives

Lower-Division Honors Seminars and Honors-Designated Courses

The following list is of Honors Seminars (FYS 100H and HON 200) and honors-designated sections of departmental courses. In fulfilling General Education requirements at Marshall (Core I, Core II, and Additional University Requirements as seen in Degree Works), we advise our students to take honors-sections (any course with an “H” at the end, such as ANT201H or CMM104H) as much as possible as a means to complete both the required 12-hours of “general” honors credits of the Honors Curriculum as well as their General Education requirements at the same time. The list also includes mandatory first- and second-year Honors Seminars (i.e., FYS 100H and HON 200). Note that HON 200 is only taught in the spring semester. The FYS 100H and HON 200 seminar courses, together with a minimum of two HON 480 Honors Seminars (in the list above), contribute 12-hours out of the total 24-hours of the Honors Curriculum.

Some of these courses may have prerequisites set by the department that offers them.
