Courses: Honors Seminars and Honors-Designated

Upper-Level Honors Seminars (HON 480) and Service/Leadership Courses (HON 484 & 488)

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.

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.

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, typically arranged by appointment, to obtain permission to register for these courses. Those students who are nearest to graduation are given priority for HON 480 seminars.

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

The following list is 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 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.
