Honors First-Year Seminars

Fall 2019 Seminar List (pdf)

All students enroll in an Honors seminar during their first semester.  The seminar serves as an introduction to Honors, the resources offered by the University of Kansas, and an academic area of interest.

While closely examining a specific topic, students develop skills in research, reading, writing, and in-depth discussion. The instructor of the seminar serves as the Honors Faculty Mentor for the enrolled students.
