The Honors Program and College/School General Education Requirements

for students who entered the University in Fall 2007 and earlier

The courses in the Honors Program are accepted by the several schools and colleges of the University in replacement of many of the core curriculum requirements of the school or college.  Most of the students in the Honors Program are majoring in the College of Arts and Sciences and in the W. Paul Stillman School of Business; the equivalencies for the Honors Program courses for students in these colleges are listed below.  The equivalencies for students in the College of Nursing, the College of Education and Human Services, and the School of Diplomacy and International Relations are generally similar to those in the College of Arts and Sciences; for more specific information on these equivalencies, please contact the Director of the Program.
