It is now November and that means it advising season at BSU! As you shift through core requirements, schedule worksheets, and advising appointments, don’t forget your honors requirements!
Commonwealth Honors students are required to earn 21 honors credits: 12 at the 100-200 level earned through honors courses, colloquia and credit waivers; and 9 Departmental honors credits at the 300-400 level.
Departmental Honors students must complete 9 Departmental honors credits at the 300-400 level and are not required to take any honors-designated courses.
Be sure to check out the attached list of honors courses and colloquia for Spring 2017.
I want to let you know about a colloquium offering next spring– INTD 201—Preparing for Departmental Honors.
This 1-credit colloquium meets once a week for 50 minutes and focuses on helping students understand what is involved in completing an honors thesis and honors contract. You will learn about the research process, citation styles, funding opportunities, time management, and departmental honors requirements. By the end of the semester, you will have a draft of a thesis proposal.
I strongly encourage you to enroll in one of the sections available:
INTD 201-H01 HUMANITIES, EDUCATION, SOCIAL SCIENCES, & BUSINESS MAJORS
INTD 201-H02 STEM MAJORS
Instructor: Dr. Thomas Kling (Physics)
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Dr. Teresa King (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Amy Couto (email@example.com).
