How Would These Classes Be Different?

Although the materials for these Honors courses will be similar to those of their non-honors counterparts, the emphasis will be on active student learning. There will be a minimum of drill and repetition and a maximum of creative exchange and interaction. The courses will not require a greater amount of work, but will instead expose you to academically enriched content and a lively instructional method.

Will these classes affect my grade?
Absolutely not! Because of the admissions criteria for this program, the faculty assume that the honors students are capable of A or B work. The courses are designed to challenge and interest bright students, not to penalize them. If you are capable of making an A in a non-honors section, you will be capable of making an A in the Honors course.
