Teaching in Honors - Resources
Teaching in Honors
This page provides more information for both faculty members interested in teaching Honors courses for the first time and veteran Honors faculty members.
Honors Program courses are typically taught by faculty as part of their normal teaching load. Faculty members who wish to teach in the Honors Program should first approach their department chair to secure departmental support for their work in Honors instruction.
Each May, the Honors Program hosts a Faculty Workshop for those interested in teaching Honors courses. This event is held on the Tuesday following the spring commencement ceremony.
Interested in proposing a new Honors course? Review our Call for Proposals for the 2017-18 academic year. An updated Call for Proposals will be circulated for the 2018-19 year early in the fall semester.
