Study Abroad: Students should visit the International Center and choose a course of study before making an appointment with the Coordinator to seek Honors approval.

Research Assistantships: Applications are emailed once each semester. Application requires coordination with and a recommendation from the professor who will oversee the project.

Internships: Coordinator approval prior to the internship is highly recommended. To receive Honors course equivalence students must conduct presentation-worthy work.

Independent Study: From time to time students may wish to pursue study on campus in a course not currently offered. For example, a student will be studying abroad in Russia in the future and needs an elementary Russian class. It isn't being taught, but one of our faculty used to teach it. The student, that faculty member, and Honors Coordinator work together to develop an Honors Russian syllabus. Such a class requires substantial lead time.
