The College of Social Science encourages honors students to develop distinctive undergraduate programs in their chosen fields. In each major a specially designated Honors Advisor, usually a member of the faculty, assists students to plan a rigorous and balanced program tailored to the students’ individual interests and abilities.
Departments and schools of the college offer honors courses and seminars at both introductory and advanced levels. These courses are provided chiefly, but not exclusively, for members of the Honors College. In addition, the college offers independent study and research opportunities for Honors College students whose interests in social, behavioral, and economic science reach beyond the topics covered by college courses.
