Multidisciplinary Honors

Multidisciplinary Honors

Multidisciplinary Honors (MH) offers the opportunity to broaden your academic interests between two or more disciplines.  

It is the suggested choice for students who wish to pursue Honors work beyond the boundaries of the primary major. 



Faculty guidance is a critical component of the Multidisciplinary Honors program. Be proactive by contacting and meeting with multiple faculty mentors to lay the groundwork for your Honors Thesis. To help you decide upon the approach that works best for you, review the Individually Contracted Honors Thesis approach and the Thesis Seminar course offerings and discuss your thoughts with your Honors Advisor. By April of your junior year, you will need to identify how you will complete your Honors Thesis. 



Honors Curriculum requirements for the MH track include all four Depth of Study MH requirements: two Honors courses, at least one of which must be at or above the 300 level, and two 499 (3+ credit) courses, informally referred to as Honors Thesis Part 1 and Honors Thesis Part 2. 


The Honors Curriculum challenges you to find connections between academic disciplines, between theory and practice, between individual and community, and to learn to make a difference in the world.
