Course Proposal Information

Faculty members interested in teaching in the honors program have a number of options for doing so.   They may become involved by teaching a course in one of the four categories below.  To view course proposal forms, past successful course proposals, and/or worksheets created to help you create a successful proposal, find the category in which you are interested, and click on the appropriate link..

Core Curriculum Courses and Independent Studies
Follow the link above if you are interested in teaching an Honors Core Curriculum Course such as Honors Public Speaking or if you are interested in working with students for independent study projects.  Independent study projects are often used as thesis preparation classes so that students can begin researching and working on primary research the semester before the thesis paper must be written.  All proposals in this category must be reviewed by the Honors Committee, and thus should be received in the spring or fall.

Honors 2001 and 3002 Research Classes

Follow the link above if you are interested in teaching research to students who will learn research methodology by assisting you with your research. Proposals for courses in this category are reviewed by the director of the honors program.

Interdisciplinary Honors Seminars
Follow the link above if you are interested in teaching a junior-level Interdisciplinary Honors Seminar course.  All proposals in this category must be reviewed by the Honors Committee, and thus should be received in the spring or fall.

Honors Teaching Assistance and Honors Peer Mentoring Classes
Follow the link above if you are interested in teaching the junior-level Teaching Assistance class or the Honors Peer Mentoring class.  For these classes professors create a contract with the student (follow the link for guidelines on the contract), which is then reviewed by the director.

Honors Departmental Capstone Courses
Follow the link above if you are interested in information concerning Honors Theses or if you wish to learn about teaching a Departmental Capstone Course.  All proposals for this category must be reviewed by the Honors Committee, and thus should be received in the spring or fall.
