Students who have completed their Honors College Core requirements may apply to carry out additional honors course work through the Honors Fellows Program. The choice to be an Honors Fellow can enhance your honors experience in many ways. It is purely voluntary; only a small percentage of honors students will meet the challenge.
Honors Fellows Projects are as unique as the individual students who pursue them. The types of work that could be proposed include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Independent research project and paper of significant depth
• Performance recital
• Ongoing research with professors, culminating in senior thesis
• Service learning project
• Original creative work(s): art, music, prose, or poetry
Honors Fellows opt for four extra IHP classes, a total of 10 on their transcript.
