The UHP curriculum serves as a complement to your major and provides flexibility so that you have time to engage in research, internships, and study abroad experiences tailored to your interests. On average, UHP members take one honors course per semester. You also have the option of joining departmental and college honors programs, if you desire. You may print the curriculum and advising worksheet to assist your planning of your academic schedule.
How do I find honors sections when developing my schedule? Honors course offerings rotate from semester to semester. Courses that are part of the UHP curriculum are listed in two places - through Liberal Studies (LBST) and through University Honors (HONR). Any Liberal Studies courses you take must be noted as honors sections in order to fulfill UHP requirements. Look for section numbers that begin with "H" to denote honors sections. You may take non-honors LBST courses but they will not count toward your UHP electives.
As a UHP student, you will have more than one advisor. Your primary advisor(s) will be in your academic major(s). While you may rely on your academic advisor for guidance within your specific major, you should seek honors advising as well to ensure that you are on track, considering all possibilities for your senior requirements, and are knowledgeable of all scholarship opportunities. Our Associate Director of Scholars Advising, Ms. Karen James, will provide general advising and assist you with UHP requirements. Please make an appointment to talk with her about your progression in the program. You may also discuss matters of academic advising or program progression with the director of UHP, Dr. Jennifer Warner.
To make appointments with Ms. James or Dr. Warner, you may request one by sending an email including several times and dates that you are available to meet over the coming two weeks. You will receive a reply email with a confirmation of an appointment time or a request for additional proposed meeting times.
