Courses: Honors Seminars and Honors-Designated

Honors Courses and 480 Seminars

Honors students are required to complete at least two 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. Students are enrolled into these seminars by the College as they are by permission only. Those students who are nearest to graduation are given priority. In addition to the Honors Seminars, the college also offers by permission only our two “administrative” courses that allow students valuable service and leadership experience opportunities.  The first of these courses is 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. The second of these administrative courses is 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.

Honors Seminars (First or Second Year) and Honors-Designated Courses

The following lists are of Honors Seminars (First and Second Year) and departmentally designated honors-sections of 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 first two lists are of mandatory first- and second-year Honors Seminars (i.e., FYS 100H and HON 200). Together with a minimum of two HON 480 Honors Seminars (the list above), these two different seminar courses complete the remaining 12-hours out of the total 24-hours of the Honors Curriculum.
