Honors Program Curricular Sequence (Junior and Senior Years)
Scholarship, Leadership and Servanthood
Semester V – Scholar as Leader: Honors scholars will enroll in a 2-credit seminar course focusing on the theme of the “Scholar as Leader.” The course will assess different ways by which one may function as a leader, while providing students various opportunities to serve in active leadership roles.
Semester VI – Scholar as Servant: Honors scholars will enroll in a 2-credit seminar course focusing on the theme of the “Scholar as Servant.” This course will consider the ways one may lead through servanthood by way of readings, interactions with servant-leaders, and active participation in servanthood roles. A student completing both the Scholar as Leader and the Scholar as Servant courses will receive credit for one course in the Individual Thought and Behavior Component of the AU Liberal Arts Program.
Semesters VII and VIII – The Honors Senior Seminar: Honors scholars will enroll in a 1-credit senior seminar each semester. The honor senior seminar will serve as a capstone course for the honors program. During the first semester the student will work on an honors project, to be presented in the second semester. The honors project may also serve as a senior project required by the student’s major.
Thus, upon graduation, members of each honors cohort will have completed 23 credits within the curriculum of the honors college.
