Courses are at the heart of the Honors Program. Our classes are small--typically enrolling 15-20 students per section--engaging, and discussion-based. This allows our students to form meaningful academic relationships with their peers and top KU faculty.
In Honors courses, students are given the opportunity to explore ideas creatively and to be develop a greater awareness of themselves, their assumptions, and the world around them. Students can expect challenging readings, passionate discussions, and assignments that push them to grapple with the complexities and nuances of the topic at hand.
