The cornerstone of the University Honors Program is its unique curriculum. Students who enter the program as freshmen take an honors seminar each semester through the spring of their junior year. These seminars are normally team-taught interdisciplinary courses that emphasize discussion and challenge students to think critically and creatively about the material they are studying. The details of each course may change from one semester to another, but the general contours of the seminar sequence remain stable:
Honors students also take a one-credit hour, pass/fail course known as the honors colloquium. This course is taken three times, and honors students are encouraged to take it in each of its three main forms:
Other options for honors students at AUM include departmental honors courses (e.g., BIOL 1017, COMM 1017, PHIL 2007, etc.), special topics courses (HONR 1997, 2997, 3997, and 4997; these can be taken as general electives), and honors by contract courses, in which a student designs a project that supplements normal course requirements and enables the student to earn honors credit for a regular AUM course.
