Honors Program Seminar Proposal Guidelines

The University Honors Program offers Honors students a series of four different seminars, one each academic year.  The Program offers several sections of each seminar annually.  We eagerly invite proposals for these seminars from faculty across departments and Colleges, and encourage interested faculty to call, email, or visit the Honors Program with questions or ideas for seminars.

A description of the seminars follows; after the description you will find guidelines for proposal submission.

**Faculty with an  interest in offering a senior Honors seminar in a field that requires students to have particular discipline-based skills, such as Engineering, Health Sciences, or Communication Studies, are encouraged to consult with Honors Program Director Amelia Zurcher; we may have a critical mass of Honors students in that discipline who would particularly welcome your course.  It is possible to add prerequisites to this seminar.

For seminars to be offered in academic year 2013-14, the deadline is October 15, 2012 (although we are happy to discuss proposals at any time of the year).
