Additional Flexibility

Additionally, this pathway (unlike the other published pathways) does not recommend a particular timeline for core completion. In order to accommodate the scheduling exigencies of the Honors cohort, particularly for students selecting large majors, like Engineering, students enrolled in the honors program may delay taking the first four courses if they wish. They are also excused from taking the core sequences in order. That is, they may begin any sequence at any time, though they are advised to follow the sequences, as their schedule permits. Honors students must, nevertheless, take the required philosophy classes in order.

Courses for Honors Students with 15 or More Transfer Hours

Honors students with 15+ hours of transfer credit will only be required to take the following courses:
