If you are in the University Honors Program, you will work closely with an honors academic advisor to select courses that meet the requirements of both the Honors Program and the College of Science and Engineering.
You keep the same honors advisor throughout your undergraduate program, and meet regularly with him or her to select courses and co-curricular opportunities. After admission into your major, you will also work with the department’s faculty honors representative to plan for graduation with Latin honors.
Honors advisors also have drop-in hours, so you can ask a quick question.
Meetings take place at 20 Nicholson.
Appointments: Call 612-624-5522
Drop-in: Nicholson Hall, see link for hours
There are honors versions of many core courses at the College of Science and Engineering including physics, mathematics, and chemistry. These courses have small class sizes and are taught by distinguished faculty members. Your academic advisor will show you how honors courses substitute for usual courses in the Four Year Plans at the College of Science and Engineering.
The Honors Program offers tutoring and arranges study groups for select honors courses. The University Honors Program website includes a schedule for tutoring.
