The Honors College

Organization

Honors course work and departmental academic advising are designed to strengthen individual Honors College members' associations with their respective major departments or schools.

The Dean and staff of the Honors College are responsible for fostering the development of appropriate Honors course work, approving substitutions for standard general education requirements, and for coordinating the system of faculty honors advising throughout the university. They also work directly with Honors College students on many aspects of their individual programs. Honors College advisors assist students in discovering special opportunities such as research, international engagement, and service to enliven and enrich their undergraduate experiences, in exploring different fields of concentration, in pursuing multiple interests, and in making special arrangements and accommodations to help  students  take  full advantage of  Michigan  State  University's rich intellectual resources.
