Proposing HONR 220: Interdisciplinary Studies and HONR 250: Special Topics Courses

The Honors Program Advisory Committee (HPAC) invites and encourages full time faculty members from all disciplines on campus to consider submitting a proposal for an HONR 220: Interdisciplinary Studies course or an HONR 250: Special Topics course.  HPAC's primary concern and responsibility is to ensure the academic rigor required by honors-level courses.

Full time faculty members interested in taking advantage of this opportunity should first check with their Division Dean.  With their Division Dean's approval, they should submit an Honors Course Proposal to HPAC by sending an electronic copy to Dr. Alissa Burger(burgerad@delhi.edu).   The full time faculty member will then be asked to come to an HPAC meeting to discuss the proposal with committee members.

Once an interdisciplinary studies or special topics course has been approved by HPAC, it can be offered again without the need for subsequent reapproval.  Descriptions for courses previously approved can be found here.

Proposing HONR 290: Independent Study Courses

Full time faculty interested in supervising an honors-level independent study course should first get the approval of their Division Dean.  With their Division Dean's approval, the full time faculty member and student should fill out and submit an HONR 290: Independent Study Contract to the Honors Program Advisory Committee (HPAC) by sending an electronic copy to Dr. Alissa Burger (burgerad@delhi.edu). The faculty member and student will then be invited to discuss the proposal at an HPAC meeting.
