All of the courses below are pre-approved to meet the second term of the Honors Texts and Ideas requirement. All of these courses will count towards the eight Honors courses that are to be taken in the first two years. To have “Honors” posted on your transcript for any of these courses, you must also complete an Honors conversion project. Please see your advisor for more details. If a course listed below is cross-listed with another department, you may take the course under any number that is convenient for you; the other numbers are not listed here but are listed in the course guide online.
You may meet the T&I 2 requirement with a course that is not on this list, if that course engages serious literature in more than one genre, by more than one author, across a significant span of time, or offers breadth and depth in the study of literature in some other way. If you would like to fulfill this requirement with a course that is not on this list, email Dr. Wessel Walker (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the details of the course, and your statement about why it should meet T&I 2.
