HON 300H : HONORS DIRECTED INDEPENDENT STUDY
An honors DIS generally must involve either a substantial independent research project or the course material from a regular honors course. These independent studies must follow the usual Registrar procedures for regular DIS courses. Students should submit a copy of their HON 300H DIS contract and syllabus to the Honors Program co-directors no later than the last day of classes of the long term before the term in which the student plans to do the independent study.
Honors Modules allow students to take a non-honors course and adapt it so that it counts for honors program credit by completing a contract with the instructor; a module is designated on the student's transcript by having the regular non-honors course number with an "H" afterwards. The student and instructor agree to the work required to have the course designated as “honors,” and the contract requires approval by the Nisbet Honors Program. Upon approval and successful completion of the contract, the course will be designated as “honors” on the student’s transcript. Check with program directors for details on eligibility requirements and deadlines.
With permission of an Honors Program co-director and permission of the mentoring professor, a student in the Honors Program may arrange to do an independent study with a professor.
