Honors Courses for 2013/2014
Honors Embedded Course Option
In an Honors Embedded Course Option, Honors students take a regular course with non-honors students, but have extended interaction with the professor beyond the regular class meetings. The goals of an embedded course are twofold: (1) increase interaction with teaching faculty and (2) go into more depth – that is, not just more material, but more depth to the regularly covered material. Ohio State courses must be approved for this option, and only tenure-track faculty can offer the Honors-embedded option.
Honors Equivalent Courses
Honors Equivalent Courses are those courses that when taken during either the freshman or sophomore year, will count as an honors course when considering the six-course requirement*. There are no expectations of the professor to provide a different experience for Honors and non-honors students within these courses. While any 4000+-level course that is not in your major can count as an honors course, prerequisites may be an issue.
* Ohio State Lima does not have a six-course requirement in Honors.
Individual Studies Courses
Individual Studies Courses are courses designed by the individual student and mentoring faculty, whereby the student contracts with the faculty to do high-quality independent work, such as a research project or an art or performance project. The student receives course credit for this work. Students interested in the Individual Studies opportunity should contact the member of the faculty for more information at least one semester in advance of when they plan to take the course.
