In Development

HMNT 151 Freshman Honors Seminar

Currently the Honors Faculty Committee and the Honors Director are working to create a Freshman Honors Seminar to replace the Scholars Southern Connections course. It was determined that freshmen students would benefit from participating in the Southern Connections course of their own major. Rather than detract from their departmental learning, the honors program is working on developing this new seminar course that would prepare our new students for the Scholars Program.
